Our community fire department held an open house last month.
Our firefighters and paramedics are required to have a college degree before they can go through the extensive training and certification. All are cross-trained on all facets and because of the river along the city border they are also trained on winter and water rescue.
This is a mobile command center. Inside is enough computing and communications power for them to be the central point for any emergency. They can coordinate fire, police, swat, hazmat, the bomb squad, the FBI and Homeland Security all from this unit!
This is one of the commanders that runs this unit.
