Staff recommends acceptance of a Work Force Central Florida Employed Worker Training Award to pay for training two firefighters in Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting.
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.
1. Accept the Work Force Central Florida Employed Worker Training Award; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
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.
