April is here and while it still feels like winter is upon us, over at the Fire Department we are gearing up for a busy summer ahead. All three of the shifts have participated in the wildland refresher course put on by our brothers from the Sawtooth Interagency Hotshot Crew. They helped refresh our skillset for dealing with wildland fire behavior and firefighting techniques. A big thanks go out to the Shots for their help!
We also were able to participate in the Magic Valley Adult Leadership program. We were grateful to be able to run participants through several stations that taught some of the skills that we use while responding to emergency scenes. We love being able to share this profession with others! That’s all for this month, and until next month – Stay safe!
