    I will pass this on to the guys at my station. Looks like a great class for a great price. Not to step on your toes though, here is a flyer for our event that is two weeks later. We are bring Chief Montagna, FDNY in for his Respoding to Routine Emergencies class.

    Send an e-mail to Asst. Chief Chris Bishop at cbishop@orrvilleutilities.com and ask him about them. I cannot recall now if we even issued certificates for the Salka class.

    Asst. Chief Bishop told me he has not heard from you. According to him, there were no certificates issued to anyone, but we can probably send you a letter to document your attendance if you need one.

    A reminder for those who want to attend to get your application in to us ASAP. The Saturday program is starting to fill up so we don't want you to miss out.

    Thumbs up If you are free this weekend...

    There is plenty of room for the Friday session, and just a few spaces left for Saturday. So, if you had a last minute change in plans and find yourself with some free time this weekend, you can still take this training. You may FAX your registration to 330-684-5053 .

    If you couldn't make it, you all missed some excellent training. The program on Friday evening was both enlightening and sombering. A lot of discussion came out of it which is exactly what was intended.

    Saturday was a great day of training with the right balance of classroom with hands-on while not beating up the students. We enjoyed it so much that we are already looking into having Wilbur and Shand return in Spring or early Summer 2009 to do more training including a ladder company program... stay tunded for details!!!
