Oklahoma Task Force Gets Real-World Training

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Task Force One Helicopter and Search and Rescue team did some real-world training Thursday.

They simulated high water rescues.

Cadets posed as victims and were rescued from the tops of cars at the Tulsa Fire Academy.

Rescuers rappelled on cables from Lakota and Black Hawk helicopters.

Ryan Stephens is one of four Tulsa Firefighters who made it onto the Team. 

"It's humbling. We all like to help people and to be able to do cool stuff while we do it it's just awesome," said Stephens. 

They say the more they train like this, the better they are prepared for real tragedies.
