Hey Frederik thanks for the message, USAR training is coming along slowly, we have to pay for it ourselves and find our own training school because our training division is a disaster !! But its all good hopefully by the end of the year we will be half way. I noticed on your list that you are USART qualified, did you do your training in cape town, would you guys take students from up here, it is quite far but i am so determined to get this qualification. Anyways Stay safe and chat soon
Hey Frederik, Cape Town is a great city. I always feel torn between Colorado and Cape Town. I am sure that will never change. Both great. How are things with CT Fire and Rescue. Are you all beefing up for 2010. I would love to get back in a fire dept structure again.
