This evening, several TVFD members help celebrate the accomplishment of fellow firefighters at their Fire 1 graduation held at the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus. Over 10 weeks, Firefighter Jonathan Porter, Firefighter Travis Weiler, and Taylor Weisner completed their "Entry Level Firefighter" State certification through the Chester County Fire Academy. This course consisted of over 180 hours of both classroom and hands on instruction covering topics including: intro to the fire service, safety, equipment, fire behavior, water supply, hazardous materials, building construction, ladders, communications, sprinklers, forcible entry, ventilation, suppression, salvage, and firefighter survival. TVFD is proud to be certified by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner as having over 75% of our active force certified to a minimum of National Pro-Board Firefighter 1.

Over the past month, several other members have completed additional certifications.

Firefighter Joe Esposito and Rob Esposito completed 32 hours of instruction in Pumps 1 & 2 to become State certified pump operators. Topics included vehicle operations, maintenance and inspection procedures, hydraulics, and methods of water movement.

Assistant Chief Josh Spangler, Lieutenant Keith Gehman, Engineer Travis Weiler, FF Joe Esposito, FF Jonathan Porter, and FF Taylor Weisner completed a 16+ hour Truck Company Operations course. Topics covered the basic concept of truck company operations, including selection and use of key tools, advanced ventilation, forcible entry practices, search and rescue, and other fire attack support functions.

Congratulations to these individuals for continuing to keep their skills proficient and to better themselves to serve along side their fellow firefighters and the community!!
