New recruits have been put through their paces after signing up to become retained firefighters.
Crews from Heacham and Hunstanton practised how they would deal with entering a building wearing breathing apparatus to rescue a person trapped inside.
Watch manager Barry Rudd, from Heacham fire station, said: 'We have several new recruits at Heacham and Hunstanton, so this was an exercise to test our command and control procedures and create some interest in getting some new recruits.'
After a briefing, firefighters with their visors covered entered the former Dairy Crest building off the High Street to search for a dummy hidden inside. They had to feel their way around blind - just as they would have to during a real incident.
Hunstanton and Heacham stations are both looking for more recruits. For more information, click here.
