Beautiful time of year
Posted: Thursday, May 7, 2015


Dear Inbound friends and family,


We have finished up our first two refresher classes and first new firefighter training. We still have two refreshers (May 30 and June 29) and two new firefighter classes (June 1 to June 5, and June 23 to June 27). We also have two more CPR/First Aid classes, two more All Hands days, and the saw class on the calendar.


After the last ALL HANDS day, Ross and the experienced firefighters conducted an AAR and decided to hold an additional class for those who want to get better at the following:
Radio programming
Map and Compass
GPS
Technology
Medical/Incident within an incident



This class will be held beginning at 0900 on May 31 at the Oakridge location. Please RSVP with me so I can have enough lunches for all. Class should go about 6 hours. The goal is to give our firefighters the tools and training needed to be effective and professional firefighters. THIS TRAINING IS OPEN TO ALL RETURNING FIREFIGHTERS! Attendance is optional.


As I am typing this letter, there is already a 125 acre fire burning in Glendale. Two years ago we dispatched on May 5th for the Delgado fire (we were there 6 days). In other words, fire season is rapidly approaching. We are preparing as if it will be the worst season ever, while hoping for the best outcome possible.


I hope you are also preparing. This could be a long, hard, and exhausting season. Our equipment is ready...are you? Drivers, please get your paperwork in ASAP. We are preparing to put a crew available by the end of the week.


Blessings, Dillon
