Those attending this intensive 24-hour course came from the Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad, the Clinton Fire Department, and Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad. The schedule for the course included two classroom days and two full day weekend practical application days.
In the later part of 2017 Clinton Fire Department purchased a used Holmatro Combination Cutter Spreader along with some basic cribbing supplies. In the early part of 2018 they decided to change the unit designation of Engine 45-2 and to Squad 45. Chief Dorf said, “Now our members are now able to work more effectively with our partners in the Rescue Squad after completing this cross training.” He further said, “The Clinton Fire Department is much appreciative of Rescue Chief Frank Setnicky and Deputy Chief Matt Stiff for providing this much needed training.”
