Fire Ops 101: Train Like a Fire Fighter for a Day
Elected officials and members of the media are invited by WSCFF Locals to undergo a day of fire fighter training at the Volpentest Hammer Training Facility in Richland, WA. This event, sponsored by the IAFF 7th District, usually takes place in March. Attendance is limited to one elected official or media person per local, and a local member must accompany (‘shadow’) each attendee. Details, registration materials, and hotel information are posted with an announcement on the calendar of events each year. This is a great way to provide opinion leaders and policy makers with hands-on experience of the time critical, labor intensive, highly technical nature of the job. For more information, contact IAFF 7th District VP Ricky Walsh.
