Last week City of Bellevue Councilmember Jeremy Barksdale joined us for a trip to FireOps 101 over in Richland, WA at the federal Hammer Facility.
Councilmember Barksdale jumped into the fray without hesitation, learning why our job is so challenging at times. Participating in CPR, live fire training, running the infamous "Jaws of Life", and climbing 100' up the ladder truck - it was a day of learning and challenges. We can't thank Councilmember Barksdale enough for facing all these challenges!! Jeremy joined several other City of Bellevue officials who have also experienced FireOps 101 - Claudia Balducci, Kevin Wallace, and Pete Bourgeault.
Our profession is labor intensive, highly technical, and extremely time critical - and attending FireOps 101 and going through the experience helps our community decision-makers learn those lessons in real time. #WSCFF #IAFF#FireOps101... See MoreSee Less
Bellevue Fire, thanks for the opportunity to walk a day in your shoes. It was an amazing experience. Though I had the luxury of not having to worry about harm or loss of life while going through the different scenarios, I know the work you do is unpredictable, hazardous, and takes its toll--physically, mentally, and emotionally. Thanks for all that you do to save lives in our community. A special shout out to Cass (my shadow who guided me through the scenarios) and Tom for capturing all the shots and keeping an eye out to make sure we returned without any mishaps.
