With the success of Measure F, the District began rebuilding its staff by hiring five Engineer Recruits.
This is the first round of hiring that is occurring to allow the District to refill the vacancies sustained over the past year.
These five new staff members began Recruit Academy 8 on May 24th. They will spend their five-week academy housed at the Mad River Station where they will receive a majority of their training for the District.
If you drive by the station on Janes Road, you may even see the training tower upright, hosting the American Flag and the academy guidon.
The two flags, along with their 2 1/2 inch hose bundle and nozzle, "Charlene," must be with the group during any training or group gathering.
Check out some highlights from their training.
