Continuing the hose evolution training from yesterday, over 90 Bomberos from Tecate, Tijuana and San Louis Rey Colorado near Yuma Az participated in search and rescue evolutions. Following the format established by Bomberos De San Diego, Groups were split in two groups and two classes. The second course involved Captain Rich Smith from Santee Fire, Ca and Marcelo De Casas , coordinator and Engineer from San Diego Fire. The topic was Officer development. The class involved participants discussing the qualities of a good firefighter and officer. Encouraging these bomberos to work toward making their workplaces better.
Tomorrow we put everything together with scenarios at the structure with marcelo, Oscar, Joel and Scott and Jaime from Tijuana Fire and Aaron Miranda from Poway Fire put on the beginning of an Engineers (Maquinista) course that is being designed for the Baja area. For the first time putting all the responsibilities of a engineer with a workshop designed to instill pride and responsibility in those desiring to drive emergency vehicles. A desired position, there is no formal training in the Baja region and through Bomberos De San Diego and members of the Tijuana Fire Dept, they are hoping to begin a program.
