Program graduates Zachary Chambers and Caleb Schwartz have completed their probation at Wapakoneta fire department and recently had their swearing in ceremony. I would like to congratulate these two young men for serving their community and continuing to show that Apollo graduates are .
Today the junior cadets took part in our annual “walk”, which is the first time that they are in full fire gear. Their vision is obscured with wax paper in the face piece and the have one hand on a section of fire hose. This exercise serves multiple purposes, primarily it gets them to learn to trust their fellow classmates and the leaders who are telling them directions. Second it helps them to gain confidence while wearing full gear in less than optimal conditions. A huge thanks to the senior cadets for helping out and for sharing their experience with their younger counterparts! I hope today taught them that we are always to share our knowledge and experience with others, and they don’t have to have years of experience to “pay it forward”!
Several cadets gave up their Saturday to attend a firefighter mental health seminar hosted by Swartz Restoration. They had the opportunity to hear amazing presentations by Patrick Kenny and Jason Patton. Although this group is just beginning their journey towards a career in public safety, they learned the importance of being proactive in maintaining their mental health.
Yesterday the senior cadets started working on their patient handling skills as part of their EMT course. They started with mannequins before moving on to live patients. The junior cadets began conducting fire extinguisher training for the students in other programs. This week they hosted the students from Construction Equipment Technology.
