    I am officially a tech!!!

    I am now officially a tech! I will be working with my instructors with thier fire depts as well as on my own. We hope to have a SK coalition back in our county within the next couple of years.

    I was not allowed answer questions in class after about the 1st hour They asked me if I wanted to teach the class and they would take it easy

    They were very impressed with my knowledge and said I will make a excellent Instructor candidate.

    ETA: At our check we had about 15 cars come through. (It was very hot) Of the 15 there was only 1 with no misuses. We gave w boosters and 2 scenera out. I had a 6 month old 22lb baby riding in a Grago Snugride rated to 20 lbs. I told the mom he was to big for this seat and she actually said she already knew that and the dr was going to write her a note to turn him FF. UGH!!!!! We of course gave her a Scenera and encouraged her to keep him RF to 35 lbs. I don't think she will though.
