Even though temperatures have fallen below -20 C in recent days, a group of firefighters from the Heilongjiang Forest Fire Brigade are showing their passion during snow rescue training at Yabuli ski resort.

A total of 40 top firefighters from different brigades across the province were chosen to participate in the 12-day training exercise that started on Nov 25.

Subjects include basic skiing techniques, snow rescue theoretical knowledge, snow first aid treatment and ropeway rescues, aiming to help them cope with various kinds of rescue tasks in winter environments.

"Because of the vast forest area, the heavy snowfall and the large number of ski resorts in the province, the snow rescue program is really practical for the team," said a participant. "It is necessary for us to practice various professional skills and form a strong team for emergency rescues."
