Osage Beach Fire Welcomes 3 New Firefighters
This month Osage Beach Fire District hired 3 new firefighters. Probationary Firefighters once hired are required to work a 40 hour week of training preparing them for their first 48 hour shift with their assigned shifts. This 40 hour week they learn the basics including but not limited to, hose deployment, rope rescue, and auto extrication. This 40 hour week also gives the new firefighters a chance to meet everyone they may not work with regularly as they work hand in hand with the on duty crews during these 40 hours. Once their week is completed they then will report to their assigned shifts on their scheduled day where they will complete a 6 month probationary period. During this time frame they are required to complete a task book involving numerous types of rescue scenarios, driving and pumping scenarios, and other firefighting techniques before they receive their badge and official title of firefighter. We would like to welcome probationary firefighters, Shiplett, Schnare, and Douglas to the Osage Beach Fire Protection District Family and the Lake of the Ozarks!!
