The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department and Jasper Police Department conducted the training simulations in a house that will be burned down in a training exercise for the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department this weekend. “This kind of training is real-life training that we don’t get to do all the time,” said Jasper Police Department Sgt. Adam Bower.
