While recently training, in the Durban, South Africa part of the world, I was working with a group of First Responders to assist with training.
While using the Ethekwini Fire Academy, I met a group of young cadets (all young ladies) who were preparing for their finals – particularly their HazMat Practicals. The staff invited me to assist and observe. I was honored. This is just a short clip. They had already completed FF 1 & 2, based on the NFPA, for the past 4 months. The Hazmat was additional, due to the fact that they were graduating and going on shift for 8 months. I was impressed by their candor, professionalism and attention to details. Their instructors deserve all of the credit. I was just happy to witness them go through the paces. I am so proud of each and every one of them. I had a great time working with them and I wish them all much continued success.
