On Saturday April 14th a few members of the Thorndale Volunteer Fire Company attended the Spring Fire 1 Class, Friends and Family Day held at the Chester County Public Safety Training Center. The company currently has one member that is attending the Fire 1 Class, Eric Stewart.
Eric, as with the other roughly 20 students from the surrounding fire companies, has almost completed the nearly 200-hour basic firefighting class. Eric joined the fire company as a 14-year-old junior and with his recent 18th birthday, was eager to enroll in the class. From the county website, “The goal of the course is to provide a person with little or no previous fire service training or experience with the basic knowledge and skills required to function safely and effectively as a member of a fire suppression team functioning in today’s environment. Students will also receive training in Hazardous Materials, CPR/AED, and Structural Fire Fighting”.
