June is here and the weather is finally warming up! We have all been busy getting ready for the summer season, which brings with it wildland brush fires as well as outdoor recreational incidents. We have used the good weather to get outside and train on disciplines that are typically more difficult in the wintertime, such as flowing water, rope rescue, and fire engine operations. We also had the opportunity to participate in several trainings around the area such as the First Responder Mental Health Conference, Hands-On Training Academy put on by our neighbors at Rock Creek Fire, as well as the Mountain West Fire Conference put on by Pocatello Fire.
We also have broken ground on the replacement Station #2 that will be on Cheney Drive near Washington Street North, as well as on the training ground near the Animal Shelter. We are very thankful to all of the City departments, Fire District, contractors, and the citizens for helping us to update our aging facilities and bring new training opportunities to our area. Maybe TFFD will even be able to host its own fire training conference sometime in the future! That’s all for this month, and until next month – Stay Safe!
