S.A.W. Fire Academy Lateral Class
The latest S.A.W. Fire Academy, a joint venture between South Adams County Fire Department, Arvada Fire Protection District and Brighton Fire Rescue District kicked off their training earlier this week. The new recruit and lateral entry classes have quite a few weeks to go before staffing stations in their communities. 5280Fire caught up with the lateral group on January 19th, 2024 at the South Adams County Fire Training Facility on E. 104th Ave. The seven lateral recruits spent their morning working with power saws, conducting building searches and mastering extraction techniques for downed firefighters.
