Kayne is a recent Australian immigrant and we are very excited to have him bring his unique skills and talent to the SVFD.
He enjoys most sports and has been a personal trainer which will help with all those heavy equipment needs as a Firefighter.
These last few weeks Kayne will be training in flammable liquids, search building, fuel truck prop, burning building, EMS, Pit Crew CPR, and getting ready to graduate!
Kayne, we thank you for your years of service with the Australian Army.
And, we wish you the very best these last few weeks of your Recruit Academy.
All recruits will have to pass multiple exams throughout the training on skills learned. After graduation, crews will be rotated through different station assignments and will be on probation for 1 year.
