  • Most of you should have received an email with log in instructions on how to access your Fire Rescue One Academy Portal. This is the location were all of our self-paced training will be managed from. All of you already have an assignment, a tutorial on how to use the program. More assignments will roll out, and those of you who have requested to take the online Red Card training will see those assignments in your portal as well. We will be starting the other self-paced certification courses shortly. Start thinking about where you want your training to go to achieve your goals! Contact Chief Pope if you have any questions.
  • For those of you that went on the shop fire in the Terrace Hills subdivision, GREAT JOB!! It could have so easily spread to a couple residential buildings. We worked with Idaho Falls Engine and Tender 2 on this fire. It is great to have their support when needed and they expressed that they enjoy working with us on scenes like this. We still haven’t determined a cause. The insurance company is waiting for a break in the cold weather to investigate it further.
  • Ririe responded to a chicken coop fire, which was a total loss on outbuildings. Again it was good to work with the Idaho Falls station 2 firefighters. This fire was right on the edge of our boundaries so both Ririe and Idaho Falls were dispatched.
  • Those of you who attended EIRMC’s EMS conference on March 10th, please make sure you get a copy of your certificate to the office so it can be added to your training.
