Congratulations to Firefighter Xavier Burton 2672 who graduated to a black shield this past weekend. Xavier took his Engine Company Test to get off probation. This test is a demonstration of skills and knowledge. The knowledge test consists of quizzing on several critical SOGs such as Accountability, Mayday, Air Management, Radio Procedures and a closed door quiz on all the compartments on Engine 261. Examples of the skills test includes Forcible Entry, Dressing Hydrants and Low Profile Maneuvers on SCBA.
