Summer is almost over and between calls for service and training, things have been busy as ever at the Fire Department. Captain Scott Widner retired after 24 years of service to the City. We wish him the best as he pursues his next adventures. With that retirement and one firefighter pursuing a career with a different department, we have two new recruits that will be starting early August. They will have an 8-week academy to become familiar with TFFD and our operational standards and procedures, and after completion they will begin working on shift. Tune in next month for their introductions and pictures!
Over the past month, we have been on several severe vehicle accidents. There have been a large number of vehicles on the road, with an influx of new residents and travelers passing through. This is a great time to remind ourselves that while driving, stay focused on the road and surrounding vehicles and pedestrians. Remember to always drive defensively and make sure to leave enough space while following another vehicle to be able to stop. Let’s help try to prevent any more vehicle accidents! That’s all from the Fire Department, and until next month, stay safe.
