FRAMINGHAM – For the first time since 2019, the Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian held its Youth Public Safety Academy in person.

On Wednesday, July 20, youths from Framingham & Natick visited the Framingham Fire training facility in Sherborn . The campers watched members from Framingham Fire Station 5 on Concord Street cut open a vehicle to demonstrate what happens when firefighters have to extricate a driver or passenger from a vehicle after a crash.

The vehicle was donated by Exceptional Auto Body in Framingham, said Framingham Assistant Fire Chief John Schultz.

The firefighters used the “jaws of life” hydraulic tool and other tools to open the doors and cut off the roof the blue sedan.

The youths asked numerous questions of the firefighters.

Afterwards the boys and girls took a tour of Framingham Fire headquarters on Loring Avenue.

The campers are scheduled to graduate on Friday, July 22 from the week-long camp.
