When it comes to an emergency in a home, first responders are ready, but what if something happens in a motorhome?
Hearthside Grove Luxury Motorcoach Resort in Petoskey, Mich., gave emergency crews an upper hand for those types of situations.
The resort invited local police officers, firefighters, and EMS to their park Thursday night (June 16) to give them an idea of what they might experience if there’s an emergency while a family is camping.
“If there’s a problem with a motorhome, if there’s a fire, what does it look like inside, where the propane tanks are, the fuel, what’s normal, where are the knock-out windows, that type of thing, so everyone’s familiar with it,” said Kirk Rose, co-owner of the resort.
More than 100 first-responders and recreational vehicle owners were invited to the park.
The main goal is to give the responders insight for when there is an emergency.
