Podcast: Training New Firefighters During COVID-19

September 17, 2020

On this episode:
We talk with some of our Fire Training staff and cadre members about the challenges faced for Recruit Class 53 in the midst of COVID-19. Five weeks into the new firefighters’ camp, the pandemic hit and that brought uncertainty in how to proceed. We discuss what made this camp unique and how this time of hardship affected the recruits, but also led to strengthened relationships.
