    Then register for the Wayne County Regional Fire School RIT Class in September. Part of the purpose in bringing Salka and company to Orrville was to better prepare the instructors for the class that they will be doing at the Fire School. Go to www.wcfra.com and click on the Fire School link. You can register online.
