I just got back from State Weekend at the National Fire Academy....WOW that was fun. It was my first time there. I took Leadership 1 that was a good start. we had a great time. the Memorial Service was really somthing to see or participate in. I didn't bring my Class A's But I will Next Year. I met Alot of High Ranking ppl there, some of the Best Instructors In the State Including Randy Isenburgh ( I hope i spelled it right) he is one of the instructors that wrote the new Haz-Mat 472 program and my instructor John Gallis who did an increadable job. and Yea for those of you who have been there and know the "Tradition" I was at the Ott House and YES I RODE THE DRUNK BUS!!!!!! I also Have the T-shirt to prove it!!!! LOL it was a great time. There was more food than you know what to do with and no shortage of Information, Knowledge, Wisdom and of course Beer! It is a great time and if you have not gone I highly recomend it to everyone all of the states do a weekend (as far as i know) check your Commisioner's web site it should be on there. I know it is an experiance i will never forget and i KNOW I will return to next year. if you have any questions or can't find your information let me know i do have the info for the Academy and i am sure they can help......hope to see you next year for all you ppl in Pa.....stay safe out there and remember EVERYONE goes home!!!
