    Yes, HDIron883 had some great info regarding TFA. It sounds like a great program, but unfortunately it's shaping up that my work schedule isn't going to be compatible with their weekend training schedule. My only option now is trainingdivision.com and its 2 week bootcamp using my vacation hours. It's not so bad I guess, as I've heard overwhelmingly positive things about their program.

    Thanks for the post though, and if I need more info on TFA or South Hays I'll be sure to let you know.

    Check out Fire Academy Online. They also have an online course with a week or two of skills at the end. It's a great program.

    How's everyone's year going so far? We started off with a bang running 23 calls in a month. This month has us slowed down to catch our breath. Only 6 calls thus far. Should be simple to enter into NFIRS this month.

    I think I jinxed us. In one day we ran 4 calls and over the weekend we added about 3 more calls. At least training went well.

    That's great to hear. Wow 135 calls thus far. That is a little busy for me. My EMS service is up to 23000 so far but that is state wide for the entire operation.

    We've been busy here too. One fire along with a slow day for the media and I get slammed with phone calls.
