DECEMBER TRAINING BRIEF
Just a reminder that all Penn Fire Members are required per the Training SOG to watch the YouTube Training Videos each month posted at: https://www.youtube.com/PennFireTraining and complete a Training Form! This can be done as a group and SHOULD BE DONE PRIOR TO HANDS ON TRAINING!
MISSING ONLINE TRAININGS - HAZ-MAT AND LOCKOUT TAGOUT
NEW COMPUTER AIDED DISPATCH SYSTEM!
One of the best features is the ability to maintain notes on ANY address. These notes can be dangers, door or gate codes, long lays, etc.
We have already had our long lays updated - a matter of fact - FF Hamilton did such a good job on that project, he found 4 addresses the county didn't even know existed.
PLEASE FORWARD ME ANY ADDRESSES AND INFORMATION YOU THINK WE NEED TO MARK!
After 1-1-16 each station/shift will be able to go to the new Dispatch Office and start training on and testing the new CAD. The system will hopefully go live in either April or August 2016. We plan on keeping ACTIVE 911 as well. Front Line Apparatus will be getting upgraded tablets in 2016.
