FRANKFORT- Several fire departments participated in a safety drill geared towards the Tractor Supply Facility in the Frankfort %S South Business Park.

First responders were tasked with trying to pull a tractor trailer off two cars. "The main goal today is to learn what it takes to stabilize a tractor trailer," said Chief for the Frankfort Fire Department, Eric Conigliaro. The trailer was empty, but they needed to treat it like it wasn't. "In a real situation this tractor trailer will have freight in it, and you have to stabilize the tractor trailer so you can safely remove the patients from the cars," he added.

Tractor Supply is still hiring for certain positions. Link is here: https://tractorsupply.jobs/careers/frankfort-ny
