Firefighter completes course

Leroy Catone, a firefighter with the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company Inc. recently completed New York State’s Firefighter I course hosted by the Pottersville Volunteer Fire Company. 

Joined by firefighters from Essex and Warren counties, the “Firefighter I” course is designed to prepare the student for work as a “combat ready” interior structural firefighter. The course combines the following courses into one complete course: Essentials of Firefighting, Initial Fire Attack, Fire Behavior, Haz-Mat Operations, Weapons of Mass Destruction Awareness, and Confined Space Safety and Awareness. The course also includes components of Firefighter Survival and Mask Confidence.

The Firefighter I course began in July of this year and was completed with a formal graduation ceremony earlier in October. Mr. Catone was presented his certificate by Fire Captain James Brooks in the presence of their families, friends and fellow class members.

The Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company Inc. has raised its level of NY State Level 1 Certified firefighters every year since 2007. Earlier this year, five firefighters attended the Firefighter 1 course hosted in Fort Ann, and currently there are four firefighters attending Firefighter 1 class in Ticonderoga. Two more firefighters are scheduled to attend class in Cambridge in November.
