The Salisbury Fire Department (SFD) has teamed up with Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (RCCC) and the Carolina Brotherhood to host a fire training seminar titled “The Stretch Training Day” on Saturday, June 15, at 730 Jake Alexander Blvd.
The seminar, scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be taught by nationally accredited fire instructors.
“We are happy to support the Carolina Brotherhood with this fire training seminar,” said Battalion Chief David Morris. “The goal of this one-day fire training seminar is to ensure fire personnel are equipped with not only the materials they need to do their job safely, but that they also have the knowledge and training to do their job effectively. Participants can also expect to receive hands-on hose advancement, nozzle techniques, saw familiarization and ventilation training. The efforts put forth by SFD staff, RCCC and Carolina Brotherhood truly represent this year’s theme of “brothers helping brothers.”
The training will take place in and on an acquired structure that is scheduled for demolition. The day will also include the raffle of several fire service prizes where 100% of the proceeds will go towards supporting the Carolina Brotherhood, an organization that provides emotional and financial support to the families of fallen first responders throughout the Carolinas.
Residents in the area can expect to see increased firefighters and firefighting units in the area. For additional information or questions, contact Salisbury Fire Department at (704) 638-5351.
