IHB Firefighters recently completed State Certification in Aerial Operations, Hydraulics and Pump Operations. They are now eligible to sit for the State Exam as State Certified Driver Engineers.

Aerial training was conducted at the Indian Harbour Beach Club on Thursday night. This timeshare resort has a very tight parking area for the apparatus to work in as well as a covered parking area that limits the ability of Truck 56 to position close to the building which reduces it’s reach and scrub area. Firefighters ascended the 75′ aerial ladder and practiced simulated roof ops with tools and high rise packs. We would like to thank the manger and residents for allowing us to practice at The IHB Club. Hands on training such as this is invaluable tool for us.
Congratulations to our newest certified Firefighters:
Ed Storch and Jill Carrick recently completed the first phase of their firefighter training and are both now certified as Firefighter I. It was a very long drawn out process for Ed and Jill as they were caught in the middle of the States transition from FFI 160 hour requirement to FFI 208 hour requirement. Congratulations to both for sticking with it over the past year. Jill Carrick is now beginning her EMT training and will then proceed to FFII. Ed Storch is finishing up his 12 year career with the US Navy and will be moving to South Carolina to pursue a career in Firefighting. We wish the best of luck to both.
Stephanie Cole recently completed her Firefighter II training at BCC-Melbourne and successfully passed the State Exam for Firefighter II, Stephanie is also a Certified EMT and will be employed by Coastal Ambulance Service. Congratulations Stephanie.
