I have been in the trailer that is on your profile picture also. It was in Ontario, OR and I went throught it. Our department covers Idaho and some of Oregon. Have you been to any training in Salem at the DPSST Campus. If not then it is a really good place to go for trainging. I usually go every year.
John, welcome to the FF Nation. I am glad another Oregon Firefighter dropped in to join the group. Dont be shy. There is lots to do, read and be involved with. Your participation and involvement is important to us all. Takes a bit to kinda figure it all out but you will be glad you did. Have fun and look around.
