Indian Joint Fire District firefighters receive advanced training, new rescue vehicle

The Indian Joint Fire District has announced that several firefighters have completed the 240 hour Firefighter II program. The intense training required by the program is not often completed by volunteer firefighters.

The firefighters included Dan Definbaugh, Sean Dearwester, Andrew Jacobs, Kevin Sloas, Captain David Klauer, and Chief Mark Gibson.

The Indian Joint Fire District also released news of the arrival of their new response vehicle from Fire Safety Services.

“Rescue 101” was manufactured by Maintainer Custom Bodies and is capable of carrying 10 firefighters and their gear to the scene of any accident, fire, or other emergency requested. The truck carried the most up-to-date equipment and features more powerful hydraulic “jaws” necessary to gain entry into today’s stronger vehicles. The “jaws” are stored in custom front bumper designed for the fastest access and usage.

The fire department is inviting all members of the community to see the new “Rescue 101” and join them to honor their firefighters. The truck will be on display at the Indian Lake community Church Fellowship Hall on Thursday, June 26th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Attendees are invited to a free spaghetti dinner sponsored by the ILCC Good Samaritans.

A formal acknowledgment for the advanced training received by the firefighters will take place at 5 p.m.
