Good afternoon. Attached is the training calendar for June along with some monthly reminders.
As you may know, we have been working to secure four houses to train on/burn. We have 2 on Forrest Way and 2 on Florence St. in Stayton. We are getting close to securing these properties. We will have the houses on Florence St. to train on throughout the summer starting in July. The 2 on Forrest Way may be ready to burn in a couple of weeks so there is a possibility that we will changing the June 14th training to burn 1 or possibly both of these on that drill night. We should know more by late next week. If there is a change to the training schedule, we will send out an updated schedule.
If you have not completed your mandatory Wildland and Hazmat, this month will be the last opportunities to get that done. Please see the schedule for dates.
Mandatory training for the third quarter is Driver Rodeo and Driver Refresher. We will be looking at setting up the rodeo for a 3 week period during July at the bus company. This will be the only time the rodeo will be available. We will be scheduling several opportunities for the driver refresher during August and September.
Summer is upon us. Please remember to stay hydrated. Please check your wildland gear and make sure that you have everything that you need.
