All fire hydrants located in the city are inspected during the month of November and flow tested throughout the year.
Classroom Training/Station Maintenance
December, January, and February are typically reserved for classroom training, and if time is available, for station maintenance projects. State and federal legislation has impacted the fire service in several areas including Hazardous Materials, Fire Fighter Right-to-Know, and Infectious Disease control. These laws have required special training for suppression personnel and have also required modifications and additions to department record keeping and documentation. Shift captains are responsible for documentation of training received, activities performed, and personnel working.
