Central district training school in South Dakota

June 3-5, 2021: Regional Fire School, Labette Community College.

     The fire service has seen many improvements in safety. One of these improvements I would like to discuss this month is the remote-control nozzle. Fighting field and grass fires represents a large percentage of calls for most Iowa fire departments. Over the years there have been many adaptations made in equipment to assist in this process.

     The 26th Annual Iowa Firefighters Memorial service will be held on Sunday, June 13, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. at the Memorial site in Coralville.  Address for the site: 1 Russell Slade Blvd.

On April 29, the Bennet Volunteer Fire Department held a live fire training night for some of its firefighters, including three new members. Tyler Kinzie surveys a brush fire that was intentionally set as part of the training exercises.

     Black Hawk Volunteer Fire Department responded to a reported wildland fire in the 7000 block of Marvel Mt Ridge Rd, Unincorporated Meade County, Black Hawk, SD, on Apr. 11, 2021 at 1:39 a.m.

     Fire school is here, right now, in River City. If you are reading this month’s paper fire school will be in a couple of days. There’s still time to get registered for the class you want, but hurry.
