LBTS VFD Training…

Front row seat last night to observe first hand the LBTS VFD in training….

a sight to behold…better than any reality cable show out there!

In the parking lot on El Mar Drive …across from town hall…across from the new park….

big, beautiful flashing firetrucks…with lights flashing…ladders extended and a mass of trainees in gear from head to toe!

they were put through their paces….

Fort Lauderdale showed a clear indication of a promising future of cooperation with our LBTS VFD by participating with their fire ladder truck!

Only thing missing….residents….

I encourage you all…bring your blankets…a thermos….heck…a picnic…have a seat at the new park and marvel at what will be not only a return of tradition…but a first class …well trained…department!

So many have applied…that there is a real possibility… a waiting list will be the norm…

We have a full time Battalion Chief …liaison…who gave up his job as fire inspector in Davie to return to be the conduit between the VFD and the town…well known, well respected by all…Chief Patrick Pointu..who owns a home right up the street from the station.

Chief Bob Perkins… who filled me in the side by side cooperation planned between AMR and the VFD which will ensure residents are fully covered… cohesive public safety will be the mainstay…assuring the town of quick response times….fully knowing locations of those needing help…a big ..ongoing problem we deal with now and have faced in the past…

Lieutenant Fowler was on hand….and as reported…he will have up and running ASAP… 2 ATV vehicles the town has purchased…. to further ensure safety on the beaches….extending protection to residents and tourists…

BCbythesea… humble opinion….naysayers and skeptics….take the time to see what is happening…after the incident at the condo last week…and previous problems…. this is the right move… at the right time…
