Attention Indiana Fire Instructors!

In the Switzerland County Newspaper is an article that all Instructors should see. When I rad it I almost came out of my seat in outrage at the blatant disregard for NFPA 1403. For any other interested parties, http://vevaynewspapers.com/ is the link. click on the "Reflections" link and register for online access. after this week you will have to select the "Reflections 10/8" link to view it.
