October 30th, 2017 ~ In firefighting, training is vital. It helps firefighters stay safe. It keeps the people around them safe. It helps the firefighters be more efficient.
Part of the considerable commitment of being a dedicated volunteer firefighter is to give up weekends and evenings… for training.
For some departments, training is an ongoing commitment and this month a whole lot of trainin’ took place in Green Bay.
