Hi Tim, I was reading through some old correspondence when I re-read our conversations about ther trench program. Would you be interested in info if the program is done this year. Also since we talked last, I have been further north then Rhode Island. Went to Nova Scotia and did a Farmedic Provider program for a week there. Would this be a program you would be interested in to. We have one scheduled in NC in May if your interested. May be going back to NS in May again too. You can reach me quicker through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org Jim
Hello,My name is Tibor, and I am firefighter in Nitra, a city in Slovakia. I am looking for fire patches collector in your city or fire department, because I collect and trade fire patches from over the world.Greetings from Slovakia
Hope you are able to Tim, that would be great to meet you. The trench program is called the York County Trench Weekend and will be located in York, Penn. and be on May 1st, 2nd & 3rd. The first evening is classroom and Sat- Sun is all hands on. Eat your Wheatie's before class, you will need them. I promise when you go home you will be tired and have learned alot. There will be factory reps there to provide technical info and show all there newest stuff. We paly with everything they bring. Lots of ways to approach. You can contact HACC (Harrisburg Area Community College to register. I think it is about $100.00 for the weekend. If you let me know you need housing, I can probably put you up in a local fire house for your stay. My teaching partner and myself stay with friends in Hanover, Penn. on the south side of the county towards Baltimore. Great places to eat and great time to network. They really do the program well. It started in Baltimore County, Maryland in the early 90's and moved north in 2000. Do a search under the trench name above for more info or try Hanover FD or the old name of the Mason Dixon Trench Weekend. Hope you get to join us and stay in touch. Jim Young email@example.com
Hi Tim, Got your follow up message. How is Rhode Island weather. It is 70 here today and 72 tomorrow. Even though I live in North Carolina, I travel to Penn to teach in a trench rescue program there each year. Will be there weekend of May 1. I see you have done some specialized rescue. If this is something you would be interested in, I may be able to arrainge a place to stay for you. Usually 7 to 10 open trenchs going at a time and plenty to do for the novice or experienced. Come on down from RI and see us. Also Tim, do you mind if I use any of your pics in my classroom presentations. Jim
