HIFR Is Recruiting

Summer has gone and the fall training season is upon us. This is the time where we train our new recruits to be firefighters. This is not some backwoods training. we train our firefighters to the industry standard qualifications. If you go through our entire training program you will have the qualifications necessary to get a job at a career department.

Joining the fire department is extremely rewarding. I know I’m not alone in saying that I’ve gotten more out of the department than I’ve put in.

Please call myself (Doug Chinnery 335.3444) or our chief (Giff LaRose 335.1115) if you have any questions. There are applications available at the free post in the Fire Department box, or download one here.

New Recruit Deep in Training

We’re excited to have Patrick Lui join the department this fall. Patrick is just the latest of our recruits to embark on a lifetime of training to improve his skills as a firefighter. Patrick will devote 2 evenings a week for the next 6 months to get the basic training required to become a firefighter.

He has already show his worth by finishing high in the pack in our yearly obstacle course and fitness test we call the “Firefighter Challenge”. Welcome aboard Patrick!
