Colombia 2014 (Deployment #2)

26 November, 2014 at 11:54 am

Congratulations to Matthew Leonard and Al Gartner on completing our 2nd deployment to Colombia in 2014. The week of training is done and all went well. Our team demonstrated, or described every skill on the Justice Institute of BC: Basic Firefighting Certificate checklist, and explained each purpose. We had every Bombero (20 or so) tie knots, do hose loads, set ladders, conduct a primary search and rescue a downed firefighter in SCBA.  The Colombian Bomberos enjoyed their time and our team members were taken care of tremendously well. This is a great example of our relationship in Colombia growing and expanding, based on shared passions around serving and protecting the communities we all serve.
