  1. Hello.

    I would log to participate in this and continue my education in the fire service. I’m from Wisconsin and wondering if I would be allowed. I work fulltime as a FF/EMT and just made the lieutenants list.

    Dates?
    Fee?
    Lodging nearby?
    Gear? Do we need it and would I be able to use some if we do?

    Thank you,

    Dale
