  • Red Card certification opens up more opportunities for Westover firefighters

    Benedetti said 23 of his firefighters, approximately 33 percent of the department, have chosen to take the opportunity to become Red Card certified; taking their capabilities and opportunities to another level. “To become Red Card certified, firefighters must partake in yearly online and in-classroom classes, participate in a prescribed burn event, and perform a PACK test,” said Benedetti. The PACK test is a 3 mile hike that must be completed in 45 minutes, while carrying a pack weighted 40 lbs. The certification is not mandatory for Westover firefighters, but many choose to get the certification in order to improve their skills and open up more opportunities for themselves outside of Westover, Benedetti said.
