The January meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 hosted by the Brookline Fire Department courtesy of Acting Chief Robert Ward and Deputy Chief Kyle McEachern of the Brookline Fire Department Training Division. We will meet in the Training Division classroom in the basement level of Fire Station 6, 962 Hammond St. We last met in Brookline in April 2016.
Our training will be provided by Lt. Shawn Donovan of the Boston Fire Department. Lt. Donovan created a very popular resentation titled “Boston’s Ladder Culture” which gives an overview of the nationally recognized reputation of the Boston Fire Department and their use of ladders.
