This week features the start of the page on the history of the Marin Sonoma Fire Training Officers Association. This group was created in 1982, and lived until 2010. They provided and/or coordinated a great deal of training in Marin and Sonoma Counties, and were part of growing the programs and teaching at the Santa Rosa Junior College Fire Technology program, including the Fire Academy. We have posted the start of a written history, a photo slide show, and a 9-minute video of the 2004 Mutual Aid Drill (MAD) held at Infineon Raceway.
"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results."
- Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919, Scottish-American industrialist)
