Scholarship Recipient's FDIC Experience
Posted by Alyx Fier, CEO
Scott Wegst got the opportunity to attend this year's FDIC conference under True North's Lt. Richard A. Nappi Training Scholarship. Here are a few words he wanted to share:
"I would like to thank you and True North for this once in a lifetime experience to attend FDIC. It was definitely an incredible week and the training was second to none. Throughout the week I attended 12 training sessions, 4 of them were hands on training. The 4 courses of hands on training were Vent -Enter-Search, Forcible Entry Operations, Keeping Yourself Alive and Engine Company Operations. I was impressed at all the instructors knowledge and professionalism throughout the whole conference. Every one of them took the time to talk to the students and even exchange contact information with we had additional questions. I have already brought back several new ideas for our department to implement for initial attack on fire suppression along with many new leadership ideas to help motivate members and make them feel appreciated. This past Tuesday our dept held a drill with 60 members in attendance and I demonstrated the tactics from the engine company course. The training I received will definitely help the Depew Fire Department become and stronger department thanks to True North." Scott Wegst, 1st Assistant Chief, Depew Fire Department.
