Firefighters with Cal Fire-Riverside County, Cathedral City and Palm Springs took part Wednesday in training for high-rise fires at the 17-story Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa on Bob Hope Drive.

The drill for some personnel included ascending 10 to 12 flights of stairs in full turn-out gear with pressurized air tanks and lengths of hose on their backs while toting fans and other rescue gear.

Tall casino resort buildings in Riverside County make training for high-rise fires a necessity every year, Cal Fire-Indio Battalion Chief Daniel Talbot told Patch in Rancho Mirage.
