The Davenport and Bettendorf fire departments will be teaming up to respond to fires.

They made the announcement via a Facebook post on the Bettendorf Fire Department's page.

"Beginning in October, Davenport Fire Department and Bettendorf Fire will begin to respond together on structure fires in eastern Davenport and western Bettendorf," the post read. "To prepare for this, crews are training together to become more familiar with procedures and equipment."

According to KWQC, fire officials say the training will occur on a regular basis in the future.
