Emergencies don’t take weekends off and neither do our volunteer members.
We have 9 members who took time out of their weekend to attend some outside training.
Four are attending a two day class for their Incident Safety Officer certification, which allows them to assume this position on calls. They serve as an extra set of eyes looking for potential issues that helps keep everyone working on a scene safer.
Five members are attending a Gloucester County sponsored Officer Symposium, designed to inform the departments of the outside resources available to them, in the event they be needed.
The GVFC encourages continuing training of all its members. Thanks to everyone who gave up their weekend.
