Our training is not just about what we do. With cardiac issues being the leading cause of firefighter deaths every year our members also train in physical fitness. What you are looking at here is a white board that is in the firehouse gym. This whiteboard is a compilation of various workouts that our members have come up with in order to stay physically fit. These workouts are just ideas and don't have to be completed by everyone. We encourage all types of workouts in our membership to prevent these cardiac related issues. ... See MoreSee Less

The members of the WTES continue to look for ways to Raise The Standard. Today we would like to highlight the hard work that Fire Marshal Vince Knott has taken.
FM Knott had an article named "Aggressive Fire Inspections", published in the January issue of Fire Engineering.
The article speaks of the importance of Fire Inspections and that they must be done correctly and thoroughly. When they are not being performed properly, it leads to the deadly fires that could have been prevented.
Performing Fire Inspections is good for everyone. It protects the consumer and workers, it ensures the owners that their building is safe and meets the fire code standards. Finally, it protects firefighters as we go into buildings to perform firefighting operations.
