Neighbors should not be concerned if they see emergency vehicles and firefighters in full gear on the Mountain View campus today through Sunday.

According to Whatcom County Fire District 7 Division Chief Justin Iverson, training will occur at various times around the portable buildings on the west side of the campus. Firefighters will practice venting which requires cutting holes into the roof.

The portable buildings are due to be demolished soon according to Ferndale School District officials.
