Two Paradis firefighters graduate from N.O. academy
Their completion of the program marks the first time that the Paradis department has taken part in the training opportunity.
These two dedicated members spent 16 weeks attending the academy with no financial compensation.
As a part of the training program, Gros and Friloux earned various National Firefighting Certifications.
By completing the program, they earned International Fire Service Accreditation Congress and National Professional Qualifications System accredited Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Hazardous Materials Operations, Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator, and Louisiana Bureau of EMS Certified Emergency Medical Services- First Responder.
This was a major accomplishment by these two individuals and also a real benefit to the Paradis Volunteer Fire Department and the citizens of Fire District 6 in St. Charles Parish.
Having well-trained firefighters equates to better service to the community, as well as a better fire rating by the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana and savings to insurance policy holders in the district.
The Administration and Membership of Paradis Volunteer Fire Department wishes to congratulate the two on their achievement and thank them for their dedication.
