    Several of the good ole' Ohio boys will be there. Not sure how many but I think we have had 7 firefighters turn their sheets in plus a lot of our first responders will be there so you can rest arssured on a strong Ohio presence.

    Sounds good! Hopefully, the turnout will be as strong as past years. I believe that there is already over 150+ people pre-registered.

    Stay safe,

    To all:

    I hope everyone had a good time on Saturday!

    There were more than 500+ firefighters taking classes from nearly 100 fire departments across IL, WI, and IA. Also, thank you to all that participated in the fellowship after the school.

    Mark your calendars, the next school will take place in April of 2010.

    Thanks again,
