April training was JRPAT testing and all of our Firefighters performed flawlessly as always. Our crews were also busy with EMS Continuing Education and other shift training. We are always working to sharpen our skills.

As we move into the month of May we will be training and certifying our Firefighters on Fire Boat responses on both Lake Norman and Mt. Island Lake. If you see us out on the water give us a wave, and if you have any questions feel free to ask. As always, we are ready for any challenge we are faced with and our diverse and expertly trained Firefighters are ready to tackle any task thrown at them. If you need us dial 911 and we will be responding.
