You have the burden of becoming the leaders of this organization.”To earn that one-year shield, the six firefighters awarded at the ceremony had to endure a year of various tests, including physical and written examinations, map tests, and a paramedic exam.

The Training Chief is responsible for performing the managerial and administrative functions of the training division, overseeing the fire training captain and the paramedic training captain.“This position allows you to have an effect in our department because it oversees training in everything,” Alvarez said. “I know he will continue to improve this department from this position. I’m excited about that.”Moya said it felt good to be promoted to the position, and that he would focus most importantly on training everyone in safety to make sure everyone goes home to their families at the end of the day.
