GREENVILLE – On May 17, a representative of Sinclair Community College, members of Greenville Township Emergency Services, Ansonia Fire Department, Celina Fire Department and New Madison Fire Department gathered along with family and friends to honor those that successfully completed Sinclair Community College’s Fire Academy.
Most participants were presented Certificates of Completion for Firefighter I, Firefighter II as well as Hazardous Materials Operations. The remaining participants were presented with a Certificate of Completion for Firefighter II Transition, meaning they already hold the other certifications.
Instruction began in September 2015 and culminated with the taking of the Pro-Board and the Ohio State tests in early May of this year. Classes were held predominately at the Greenville Township Emergency Services Building. Other site around the county and the region, such as the old Corning Building, the Dayton Fire Training Center and multiple locations around New Madison, were utilized over the course of the academy.
“With the completion of this course these individuals are equipped with the knowledge and skills to return to their departments and begin to provide a greater service to their respective communities,” said Susan Miles, Greenville Township Fiscal Officer.
