SRFECC Forging International Relations

May 2014, SRFECC welcomed distinguished guests from Belgium! Each year the Belgian non-profit group, Fire Observers, representing fire departments from Belgium and The Netherlands sends a group of firefighters to the United States to exchange ideas, knowledge, experiences, and training. This year, the Fire Observers group travelled to Sacramento to learn firefighting strategies in an urban-wild land interface. While in Sacramento, the Fire Observers group stayed in quarters at various Sacramento fire stations and were introduced to drills, education, and demonstrations. During their visit to SRFECC, the Fire Observer group got their first introduction into child CPR as our own Dispatcher Maggie Badilla received a 911 call and provided life-saving child CPR instructions over the phone.
