When our Kansas Fire & Rescue Training Service launched this program, we had no idea that it would stir up so much interest. Thanks again to our partners and a special tip of the hat to Ed Morrison (KF&RTI Technical Rescue Program Manager) for taking the concept and turning it into a successful program! Ed and his assisting instructors have spent much of the last 9 months delivering more than 70 courses.
