Last day of the Cycle for C-shift

TGIF and it's our last day. I spent most of it in training. The 2nd annual Fire Officer Seminar was held here in Roanoke today and will continue through tomorrow. This year the speakers came all the way from San Bernardino Ca. Mike Alder, a Battalion Chief, and Mat Fratus, Deputy Chief. Check out this link for their complete bios here. This years topic was a Dynamic Risk Assessment (a culture of safety). I don't have the numbers but today's attendance looked to be pretty good. Afterwards, everyone was invited to Roanoke City's Union Hall, L-1132 for food and beverage, also not sure of the attendance there because I'm on duty. The event today also had several free raffle items as well as a 50/50 drawing and a raffle for 2 UNBELIEVABLE custom fire helmets. I believe the helmets were provided by Blue Ridge Rescue and were painted by a brother from Danville, Va (hope that's the correct location) Billy Scearce. Here are some of the pics, Thanks to all of the sponsors for allowing the brothers and sisters of Southwest Va. this excellent opportunity to bring more quality training to our area.

Two were raffled today and the two remaining will go tomorrow... they looked even better in person. Other than that a pretty calm shift. See ya in 4, stay safe and in the house. Capt. Wines
