To be able to apply this quote from Mr. Adam K. Thiel, you need to have the right personnel in the Training Division including management. Having competent instructor/trainer with the participation of management is essential to reach goals and objectives established by the Department. Many changes has been occurring over the last few years in our Training Division. Like a mention previously, no one wants to relearn something already well understood, so why would they want to take over this division? To be able to maintain a professional fire service, stability in the Training Division is extremely important. For a certain period of time, we without a Training Officers, only an assistant to the Trainer. He was fairly young when he joined the Fire Department and took over assistant trainer a few years after with minimum experience. It is realistic to say that it was not well received by our senior staff. Young staff well educated through the Fire School Academy, motivated to do more for the Department. He did not get the result he was expecting. Today he still hold the position of assistant to the trainer but the Training Officers position has been
I, Jerry Spradlin, am an Investigator with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. The following statement is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge. On 05/08/2014, Joey Brewer filed a report with the PCSO in reference to a vehicle being stolen from his car lot.

While the report was being made, Arkansas State Police located the vehicle and

The vast majority is done via ground transportation, and the mode of training frequency required in that case is three years. Additionally, the same three year period is required for rail or ocean transportation, but air transportation requires training every two years instead. For domestic (US) airline employees, CFR training every 12 months is required. Regardless of the length of training requirements, it is wise to keep up to date with the rules for your industry.

When the citizens of Durham see the logo for the Durham Fire Department, they know they do more than just fight fires.

I highly suggest that Firefighter III Wilson begin transitioning into a mentorship role, both within and outside the station, as sharing his knowledge with others will help him become a better firefighter

The instructors have taught us and informed us on how dangerous this job may really be. From the stories of their past experiences, to scars they have received, it is apparent that danger may be present at anytime. The unfortunate story of Lieutenant John Mickel and FireFighter Dallas Begg is a testimony to that concept which should always be remembered as a learning tool in the firefighting world. May they never be forgotten.
Out of the many events of my life that have molded me to aspire to be a physician, a humid August day in 2003 would be the pivotal moment that introduced me into the path of medicine. My father, brother, and I had been working on the front of our house to add on a porch, when my mother pulled up from receiving a routine chest x-ray due to her having influenza, and even as a nine year old child, I could tell by her expression as she approached us that something had gone terribly wrong. With anguish in her eyes, she said, “They found two spots on my lung, and they say it might be cancer.” and in that instant, my world began to collapse in on me. All I understood about cancer at such a young age was that it killed people, devastated lives, and

According to Mroszczyk (2012), safety engineers have two areas of concern to fire: the prevention of a fire and the suppression or extinguishment of a fire. An effective fire safeguard platform embraces fire defense training, fire suppression systems, and fire prevention practices to attempt and eliminate the causes of fire to preserve life by decreasing the potential for fatality, injury, and property destruction. By employing and sustaining an aggressive and comprehensive fire protection prevention boosts efficiency and minimize accidental life or physical loses.
