WAY TO GO, WRVC FIREFIGHTING STUDENTS!!!! On May 23rd, the firefighting students traveled to Farmington, Maine to take their State Physical Skills Exam. The 11 students were assessed on nine stations. A student commented..."It was a physically and mentally challenging day, but very rewarding." The class left at 5:30 am and returned to WRVC at 7:00 pm. They ended their day with ice cream AND they are now all State certified interior firefighters!!! Such an OUTSTANDING accomplishment! Many thanks to Lt. Brooks for his impeccable instruction and guidance. Thank you MELMAC for sponsoring this event!
