We did the Light em' and fight em' with the Garden Homes Academy. I will make that inquiry for you. Also I did get my resume to Alex Griff. Hopefullly if I get my application, can I use you as a reference?
Joe, I can probably get you in the E.M.T. side. That is what I'm doing now. Have not taught any fire classes yet. Hoping to when they get the internship program up and running. We missed you last weekend and IFSI.
