Local 714 lend a hand to training Firemen

Union Carpenters from Local 714 are lending a helping hand to the North Net Fire Training Center, highlighting an ongoing partnership aimed at enhancing training facilities for firefighters. This collaboration involves the construction of a mockup house, complete with panels and a roof, designed to simulate real-life scenarios for training purposes. The North Net Training Authority, renowned for providing extensive training to fire and law enforcement agencies, will greatly benefit from a partnership to enhance preparation for public safety personnel’s roles in community safety.
