Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Henderson Fire Department let cameras in as they showcased their training drills for local city leaders on Wednesday.
Mayor Andy Hafen was there as Henderson firefighters reinacted their regular emergency training.
Events like this help city leaders see what resources firefighters use and what additional resources they need, which can help when it comes to decision making.
"We know what they have to go through, so we know what kind of resources we have to allocated for public safety in this city," said Mayor Andy Hafen.
"When we start talking to them about resource needs, and we start talking to them about response times and how many people we need, now they can see what we're talking about when we have that conversation with them. It's very important," said Deputy Fire Chief Matt Morris.
