CONCORD – Firefighters from the Souhegan Fire Mutual Aid Association celebrated the completion of their Firefighter I program with graduation on Monday night, June 30.

The 2014 Souhegan Firefighter I program was conducted at the New Hampshire Fire Academy in Concord.

The 212-hour program familiarized firefighters with survival skills, search and rescue, personal protection equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus, ladders, nozzles, water supply, fire suppression, hazardous materials, wild land firefighter training, CPR, forcible entry and fire detection systems.

Graduates of the program included Zachary Adams, Jennifer Bartolomucci, Matthew Bernard, Charles James Bouley Jr., Thomas Cavanaugh, Timothy Degulis, Lorenzo DiPaola, Joshua Doda, Joshua Fogg, Austin Fontanella, William Hoyt, Brian Kimball, Emma Little, Festus McDounough Jr., Patrick Meagher, David Melendy, Seth Miller, Andrew Milligan, Brant Mullens, Harrison Newman, Colm Rogers, Nicholas Silva, Tavish Smith and Adam Zlotnick.

The Souhegan Fire Mutual Aid Association is a multitown mutual aid compact. Member towns support the mutual aid district’s emergency services.

Area towns support each other during emergencies and pay dues. The dues are used to fund foam banks for use by the towns and emergency support response services.

The services that are available through the Souhegan mutual aid system could never be accomplished by an individual town; not only would it be cost prohibitive, but it would also cause higher manpower requirements.

The mission of the New Hampshire Fire Academy is to increase the capability of New Hampshire’s fire and emergency services through research and the application of the best methodologies, techniques, education and practice of fire and emergency medical services.
