Members, New Industrial Scientific Ventis MX4 Gas Meters are in service at all 3 stations. These units are located in the radio rooms of all 3 stations (Station 3's meter will be relocated to the wall next to Engine 3 in the near future).These meters need to be taken on EVERY call that an Engine, Truck or Rescue responds on; this will ensure that a meter is available even if the unit is returning from an incident that did not require the meter. Past Chief/Safety Officer McCall has been to all 3 stations giving an overview training, anyone that has not been able to attend these sessions can make contact with Chief McCall or any officer to set up a training session. Attached are Videos published by Industrial Scientific that will anyone can watch to familiarize themselves with the new meters. Training Hours can be submitted to Assistant Chief Fischer for anyone that participates in this training.Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these new tools. Thank You.
