Yesterday wrapped up the Structure 3 and 4 programs which run concurrently at the State Fire Academy. Structure 3 students focus on tactical skills and operations at fires while the structure 4 class acts as the officers for each piece of apparatus, Safety officer, and command. The instructional staff has the best job of the week - planning emergencies and throwing wrenches into the plan to see how officers and firefighters handle the situation. Nothing is off limits for responses, and all the buildings on the grounds are in play! We’d tell you more, but we don’t want to give away our secrets for next year.

PA State Fire Academy instructor, Tony Zoroya , painting American GIs liberating Europe as war criminals in this post over at “WWII Colourised Photos”. It is a free country, of course, and he can spew such ill-informed vitriol but I can also share it with his employer and the patriotic men & women who work for PA State Fire Academy.
