They call it qualifying or ongoing training. I call it fun. On Thursday local law enforcement and fire as well as public works gathered at the training facility next to fire station 2 on Sierra college Ave. The location provides an area for a vehicle obstacle course as well as various fire training props. CHP Officer Greg Tassone set me up to drive the course in a CHP patrol car and the Public Works team let me “Bowl” with a back hoe. Each department cross trains on various vehicles in different situation in case of emergency when a Police Officer may need to drive a fire engine or a Firefighter needs to operate a back hoe. Its a tough job and I was happy to do it. Then it got better.
After a lunch break and the Noon News the officers met up at the shooting range where I finally shot my new Kimber 1911. Thank you to Officers Gammelgard and Tassone for letting me tag along.
That’s my Kimber 1911
