Tonight we are posting the start of a page on the history of California State Fire Training. This is our 34th blog posting since starting the web site this past March. It’s come a long way, with lots of content to add as time allows. 2016 will feature many more fire service biographies, and expansion of current content including major fires, department histories, etc.
Our last posting for 2015 includes the start of a page on the history of California State Fire Training, with a video featuring Chief Ronny J. Coleman on Thomas Ward, one of the founders. This video introduces Chief Ward, and was shot at the Red Bluff CA FD Fire Museum a few years ago, with help from my nephew Chris Martin, a career FF/Engineer with Red Bluff FD. See it here:
Also featured this week is a 13 year-old video of Chief Ronny J. Coleman explaining the background of the National Fire Heritage Center in Emmittsburg, Maryland. See it here:
Happy new year to all, and to all a good night, Tom
