Fire crews were out in force yesterday outside of Venice Regional Bayfront Health Hospital, but there was no emergency. Rather, firefighters from across the state are in Venice this week for ladder training. They were at the high school earlier this week and the hospital on Wednesday. 42 Firefighters from Cedar Hammock, Greenacres, Jacksonville, Oceola County, Longboat Key, Sarasota County and North Port were all on hand. The training is held once-a-year.
