I work for a small department that functions as a public safety dept. The police officers are firefighters because they are required to be, and management does little to encourage fire training among them. Those of us dedicated solely to the fire/EMS division are desperately wanting to find means to train on our own. Does anyone else have similar problems, & if so,did you overcome them & how? Our shift runs the equivalent of a 3-man engine company, so we're limited on how involved we can become.
