The low structure course develops firefighting techniques and skills for houses and other structures.

Members Rob Rau, Chris Lasota, Amanda Allsop, Hayley Hanson, Craig Davis, Tash Lasonta and Heath McSolvin were accompanied by the brigade’s new training officer Lt. Deb Hanson.

Hayley completed her minimum skills assessment at the end of 2012, and the rest of the crew completed theirs a few months ago.

Captain Yorin Miller said it was good to have more firefighters on board.

“It is great to see new members, and all of these are very enthusiastic and have got involved with various brigade activities," he said.
