New JSQ’d Firefighters

Recently we had a new group of Scholarship Firefighters and Volunteer Firefighters who participated in a two-week Jump Seat Qualification (JSQ) Course. This course familiarizes new members with Department procedures and allows them to get the training they need to be entry Firefighter. This year we had a mixed group of Scholarship Firefighters and Volunteer Firefighters. Congratulations to Zayden Blair, Dylan Heckle, Matthew Hudson, Dagmawi Kebede, Trevor Kroening, Trevor Nay, Greg Novak Christoph Reier, and Zachary Warner.
