Announcement from Chief Brad Martin.
"I would like to start off by announcing that we hired Jennifer Krusing a recent volunteer from St. 32 as our Operations Captain in charge of fire training. Jen has been working for us full-time as a Firefighter/EMT. She comes to us with over 20 years of Fire and EMS experience managing fire crews and administering ESO. Jen will work the same schedule that Jake Hogue works in December. To backfill for Jen we have moved Matt Mcgehee from part-time to full-time. Matt was also a volunteer at St. 32 and brings over 20 years of experience in the fire service to SPOFR. We started the 48 on 96 off schedule yesterday with David Stehlar working his first full-time shift. The timing couldn't be better since we had seven alarms yesterday"
