This was the first OCS the Department has held in six years. The re-institution of an OCS was one of Chief Bashoor's goals when he returned as Fire Chief 2 years ago. Fire Chief Bashoor acknowledged Dr. Sylvia Franklin, Office of Human Resources, and her staff for course development and instructional material which included an on-line component. Bashoor also thanked the staff at the Fire/EMS Training Academy for conducting the class.
Congratulations to all.
In addition to the staff from the Fire/EMS Training Academy and Dr. Sylvia Franklin Assistant Fire Chief Alicia Francis, Deputy Fire Chiefs Barksdale, Underwood and Hoglander attended the ceremony.
