DID YOU KNOW... New firefighters have to take nearly 200 hours of entry level firefighter training to be a qualified firefighter. After this period of initial training, they can take many classes ranging in subjects from firefighting and rescue to hazardous materials and building safety.

This week, one of our firefighters is at FEMA's Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama taking an advanced hazardous materials course revolving around incidents dealing with chemical warfare agents, biological warfare agents (like Anthrax), radiological contaminants, and explosives. This course is fourty hours taught by some of the nation's experts in hazardous materials and is 100% funded by FEMA.

Post a comment below, do you ever wonder about all the training our firefighters take?

Bethel Park Police Officer Tom Rigatti, partner of Officer Joey Fabus, is asking for the support of the community on Monday for Joey's funeral procession:

"Bethel Park Police Officer Tom Rigatti says his partner Joey Fabus was an inspiration, and wants the community to celebrate Joey’s life, honor his courage and show support for the Fabus family. He's asking the community to come out for the 9-year-old's Monday funeral procession and line the route with residents' own 'Stay Joey Strong' signs for the Fabus family. Police departments across the state will be in the procession as the boy will be laid to rest in uniform with police honors.

'The procession will leave Henney Funeral Home at 9:25 a.m. and proceed up Brightwood Road passing the Bethel Park police station. We will turn left onto Highland Avenue and proceed to Bethel Church Road. We will then turn left onto Bethel Church Road and follow to Fort Couch. We will turn right onto Fort Couch Road and follow to Route 19. We will then turn right (North) on Route 19 and follow to the Church,' Rigatti said."
