     The IAFF International Burn Camp is a one-week long camp that is held at Camp Wabanna located near Washington, D.C. and hosted by the International Association of Fire Fighters. Each year, regional burn camps across the United States and Canada nominate one camper and one counselor to attend International Burn Camp.

     The annual States Networking meeting was held in Des Moines on Oct. 27 with the states of Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri represented.

     In the time I have been on the volunteer fire department we have always had large diameter hose with Storz fittings as our primary water supply hose. Since I can’t compare it to the 2½ inch lines used in the past it just seems natural. I realize not all departments use this type of hose, but I would like them to consider it.

     On Oct. 28, the Stanton Volunteer Fire Department and the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicle fire near the Hwy 57/32 Junction, about eight miles south of Stanton. Upon arrival, the 2005 Chrysler 3000 was fully engulfed.

Yankton firefighters were called to the intersection of Highway 46 and 81 on Friday evening, Nov. 2, to a reported building fire. The fire was still confined to the interior when the department arrived, but the east portion was soon fully involved.
