Representative Roy will take part in live fire training where he will be able to utilize Milford Fire Department's live bum building. This informative event will provide Representative Roy with a first-hand opportunity to learn more about the fire service and the austere and rigorous conditions Franklin firefighters encounter.
The purpose of this training is for Representative Roy to gain an understanding of the everyday life of professional, career firefighters, by utilizing a 'hands-on" approach. Franklin Fire Chief James McLaughlin and Franklin Town Administrator Jamie Hellen will accompany Representative Roy at this training.
"Live fire training will give me the ability to understand the difficulties and challenges that our firefighters face on a daily basis," said State Rep. Jeffrey Roy. "I look forward to this opportunity. We are lucky to have so many dedicated, professional, and brave firefighters that are ready, willing, and able to serve in our department."
October is National Fire Prevention Month, a time when we should all be aware of ways to help learn fire safety and prevention.
