West Pierce firefighters are training at a Lakewood home today so don’t be wary if you see smoke near the 10700 block of Farwest Drive SW.

The session will start at 9 a.m. and last until late afternoon, Capt. Jenny Weekes said.

Neighbors have already been notified of the training through a reverse 911 call.

Firefighters will practice various operational tactics such as fire attack and behavior, Weekes said.
