Repairing cell phone towers and turbines is dangerous work.

That's why the state is making sure first responders are ready to go at a moment's notice.

Firefighters, paramedics, and state workers all took part in a mock rescue exercise in Dimondale Wednesday.

The teams practiced rescuing an injured worker from a communications tower.

People from the Michigan State Police, Eaton County Sheriff's Office, and the Department of Technology, Management and Budget all participated in the event.
