take certification test
For almost two months firefighters
from Clifford and Greenfield township trained together to meet a common
goal – Firefighter 1 and Firefighter 2 International Pro-board certification.
|On Sunday, November 13 this
goal was achieved certifying eleven firefighters in Firefighter 1 and Firefighter
2. The dedication and commitment to all involved was monumental and does
not go unnoticed. Each firefighter had to successfully complete a
multitude of practical skill stations along with a written exam.
The skill stations ranged
from stretching a hose line into a multistory building, attacking various
flammable liquid and gas fires, fighting fires in multi-story burn simulators,
and laddering structures for egress and rescue, along with many other stations.
|After a very long day on
Sunday, all the guys can stand back at enjoy the outstanding accomplishment
they have completed both individually and as a team accomplishment.
With the current certifications,
Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Company is the first and only fire department
in Susquehanna County with certified Fire Fighter 1 and 2 firefighters.
Once again continuing to
raise the bar of training, the members of Clifford Fire strive to offer
the residents of Clifford Township and surrounding communities the best
possible protection. A special thanks to both Clifford and Greenfield
Fire Company’s for their support of the members stepping to the plate and
reaching the milestone together.
