Update on the training records
Last weekend, we ran a story saying that the county was waiting for volunteer training records. I just wanted to let you know that Spotsylvania now has those records. They are now being compiled. The next step will be a list of what training is still needed in order to meet the new minimum standards. These are standards which were approved last year by the Fire and EMS Commission. The deadline for meeting the standards is Jan. 1, 2013. County officials have said the deadline is feasible but wanted a comprehensive list of the training already completed in order to map out a plan to have every willing emergency worker trained by the deadline.
