“No one is compelled to train…

it is simply the wise and intelligent thing to do!

Likewise, no one is compelled to be wise or intelligent.”

Chief Tom Owens - 1979


Welcome to the Firefighter 1 class held at the Fairfax City FD Training site.
The pictures today were randomly taken as I moved around the site in both instruction modes and safety modes. From watching Capt. Miller move calcium chloride around to make sure that none of the personnel were going to slip on the quickly forming ice (yes, it was below freezing...but no water was flowing in training-just what was leaking from hose line for a CPAT style walkthrough) to the basic training techniques for these firefighters, it was quite an enjoyable morning!
The photos show the intensity the instructors work with to ensure the high quality of training and the same reflection came from the firefighters who seemed to be having a good time and learning as each minute passed.
and now... enjoy!
