AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           August 8, 2011

 

From:                          Kevin R. Bowman, Fire Chief

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing acceptance of a Work Force Central Florida Employed Worker Training Award for $3,890.00 for training two

                                    fire department members in Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting     

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of a Work Force Central Florida Employed Worker Training Award to pay for training two firefighters in Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting.

 

Analysis:

With a recent retirement and departure of other FD members who were trained in Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF), the Leesburg Fire Department does not have enough firefighters trained in ARFF.  This Award will pay for two firefighters’ training in the highly specialized skill.

 

Options:

1.  Accept the Work Force Central Florida Employed Worker Training Award; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Acceptance of this Award will save the City $3,890.00.  Two other firefighters were sent to ARFF training through funds allocated in the Fire Department’s training budget.
