New class of six receives training for Anchor Point Fire and EMS

Six firefighter recruits for the Anchor Point Fire and Emergency Medical Service are in the middle of a 200-hour firefighter 1 course taught by Paul Pellegrini, an Alaska Division of Forestry wildland firefighter who volunteers for the Homer Volunteer Fire Department and Kachemak Emergency Services. Pellegrini also volunteers for the Anchor Point Fire and EMS so he can teach the course.

Last Saturday, students worked at HVFD's Mobile Dual Live Fire and Tactical Training Facility.

"Train like you fight," Pellegrini said of the instruction. He praised the new group of firefighter recruits.

"I've been really impressed with their desire to get as well trained as they can," Pellegrini said.
