Second Quarter 2017 Training Classes

This is the second quarter that we will be using Target Solutions to record our training activities.  Please ensure you attend and participate in the training classes, and make sure that you sign in on the roster in case there is an issue of attendance. Once again, there will be a few Saturday classes in the schedule to help those that aren't able to attend the Wednesday night drills.  These will be either a repeat of a Wednesday night drill so others have an opportunity to attend important training or a standalone class that requires additional time.

There will also be some opportunities for some refresher for the Firefighter II skills, in preparation for the upcoming certification test based on the WSP IFSAC criteria.  The skill sheets are the key reference for this.  The web site for this information is here.
