We will begin the next class on Tuesday, February 25th at 1900 hours at Station 68. All county personnel are invited to attend. If you know of anyone who needs these classes, encourage them to attend. Our PPE class went well but, we would like to see our numbers continually growing. Remember that class starts at 1900 hours so try and get to the station 10-15 minutes before 1900 hours in order to fill out our paperwork and that way we don't cut into our class time. Thanks for your participation and effort in the PPE class and we look forward to seeing some new faces and increased numbers in the upcoming classes.
