I see that we are lacking on a few stories so I thought I would do something on here that I don't think our guys get enough credit for and that is in the field of training. We do our training on Monday nights from 1800 hrs till around 2100 hrs and sometimes longer. Now this is the night when many of our members who can't always make the calls but want to keep their skills up to what is expected of all our firefighters. With our training facility out back of station 3 that was the brain child of 1st Vice President Richard Sullivan we don't have to drive to far to pretty much do anything that is required of a firefighter on the scene of a call.

I so enjoy watching our guys preform and remember when all we had back in the day was the side of old station 3 and the hose tower. We have come a long way Baby as they say. Now I can't begin to try and describe everything they do but you that are firefighters from other departments can figure it out from the pictures provided by my assistant Firefighter/Driver Bruce Theden who works as my legs. Another thing about the drills is it gives our younger officers a chance to work as the head officer on the fire ground. Our training officer Ass't Chief Mark Warren along with the Deputy Chief's Stockwell and Vallangingham act as observers and critique the drill afterwards.

Now it's always nice to have our associates provide us with refreshments which I'm able to partake in and don't need no officer to critique me on that. So if you are ever up our way on a Monday night other than the 3rd Monday (business meeting) stop by and check us out. Who knows we might interest you enough that you might want to fill out an application to join us. Always welcome. And for any other departments that would be interested in using our facility's just contact our training officer "A" Chief Mark Warren to set something up. We have done it in the past and glad to do it. If you just want to stop by and check out the stuff out back call him as we keep it locked up for obvious reasons cause if we didn't it would soon turn into Hotel Lexington Park.
