In addition to the weekly training, the course ends on May 12th, 2011 with a simulated emergency held at the Logan City Fire Department Training Tower. This will give participants an opportunity to put their training to use.

Everyone in the community would benefit in receiving this training. The Mayor and City Council encourage you to give serious consideration in attending these valuable classes.
