The first recertification class will be Oct. 12th at Station 80, in the conference room. if you need a new card, please make every effort to attend the training. Annual refresher training will be scheduled over the next few months for those not needing a new card.

Firefighter skill for the fourth quarter is ventilation. We will be looking at all aspects of ventilation during the quarter. We will be getting the instructor guide and procedures sheets out soon. We also have the vent prop from DPSST for most of the month of October so there will be plenty of opportunities to practice cutting holes.
Saturday Drill is scheduled for October 14th from 0800-1200. We will be at the training facility using the vent prop. I am looking for an instructor for that class. Any instructor that is interested, please contact me as soon as possible. If we are unable get an instructor, we will cancel the drill.
There will be a training facility work party on October 21st from 0800-1200 hrs. We will be concentrating on completing the search room. Please come down if you are available. There are many ways for you to help from construction to general clean up.
