Our new training officer, Sasha LeBaron has been cracking the whip to get our members to advance their training. Last Thursday saw a flurry of exams.
- Ian Emberton continued his in-house firefighter exam. All that remains is his written exam and he can remove the rookie designation from his helmet.
- Doug Chinnery wrote and passed his module 6 written exam dealing with salvage and overhaul operations on the fire scene.
- Patrick Lui completed his module 2 practical exam where he demonstrated textbook fire extinguisher technique and masterful donning on turnout gear and breathing apparatus.
- Dave Hanna wrote his module 7 exam, the topic being sprinkler systems, public education, and fire prevention.
- David Cloud wrote both module 6 and his hazmat awareness exam.
Each of last few months has seen several people advancing their training by writing exams and completing practical evaluations. This is good news for the individual, for the department, and for the community at large. Thanks to Sasha for driving this process, Duncan and Giff for administering the exams, and for all the firefighters who are spending even more of their spare time to better themselves and the department.
