As in prior years, we are kicking off the racing season with our Fire & Rescue School (a.k.a. Crash & Burn School) on March 24th & 25th.
This highly acclaimed school is for experienced workers, new workers, drivers and crews. Professionals do all the emergency training. It’s free to RMVR members, otherwise there is a small ($20) fee.
It’s great for removing the cobwebs of winter, having your questions answered, and getting hands-on fire training and extrication practice. It’s a great chance to sit down and think about flag meanings, and about what workers do and why. For novices, it’s a great place to start. For drivers, it’s the source of great knowledge and comfort.
