535 attend State Fire School at BGSU

 

BOWLING GREEN, O.—Bowling Green Green State University is hosting State Fire School again this week, but there will also be some distance education of sorts in Toledo.

The fire school is using a Toledo house, at 1155 Tecumseh, and apartment buildings, at
562 Fernwood and 1014 Tecumseh, for training in an Advanced Truck Company Operations class.

The structures are on Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner's demolition list. As part of his “Clean Sweep” project, the city will clean up the sites following this week's training exercises.

First responders, including emergency service personnel, receive hands-on training during the weeklong fire school, which has called BGSU home since 1974. This year 535 firefighters and emergency personnel are enrolled.

Visit www.fireschool.org for more information or call Ann Light or Kerry Fisher in BGSU Continuing & Extended Education. The toll-free number is 1-877-650-8165.
