Promoted firefighters complete training academy

The Fire Department’s three-week in-house training academy was completed last Friday by recently promoted Firefighter Paramedics Jacob Marshall and Thomas Stillman. The intensive training included fire ground skills such as hose lays, ladders, hazardous materials response, personal protective equipment, wildland firefighting, forcible building entry, search and rescue, and safety & survival. The academy culminated in two days of live fire training a Stations 1’s fire tower. In the first photo firefighters train at “the tower.”  The second photo shows “burn day” at the academy.
