Comox Fire holds Hazmat training
9 Firefighters from around Vancouver Island stopped by the Comox Fire Department’s Training Centre this weekend for a Hazmat Operations course.
The annual event is split over 2 weekends. The program is the 2nd level of Hazmat training for firefighters.
Assistant Fire Chief Jim Lariviere says the first session was a success.
Lariviere adds even with only 9 firefighters on hand, the course stays the same as it would with 20 fighters in attendance.
Lariviere adds the program wraps up next Sunday, with more practical, hands-on work coming up for firefighters.
