The April meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 hosted by the Medfield Fire Department courtesy of Interim Chief Robert Hollingshead. We will meet in the training room at the new Public Safety Building located at 112 North St.
Our training program will be provided by Central Equipment Co. They will offer us a look at the variety of “Active Shooter Kits” for firefighters and EMS personnel. The presentation will include; ballistic protection equipment demonstration, videos, and a hands-on look of equipment focused on use by firefighters. Ballistic protection is uncharted territory for fire departments so we all must learn about what is available to best protect our members in these situations. Unfortunately in today’s society, ballistic protection has become a must for every riding position on fire apparatus.
