Firefighters in Denton have a large brush fire under control after it burned up a drop-off recycling center Saturday, officials say.

The blaze started after 3 p.m., with black smoke that was visible from miles away.

They always say that the one who started the fire hangs around to watch the firefighters work to put it out  ???

You aren't "certifiable" but you're most definitely Certified!  (How many now?)

How many? As far as badges, I'm at 4 right now:
  • CERT - Community Emergency Response Team
  • ARES - Amateur Radio Emergency Service
  • MRC - Medical Reserve Corps
  • Rehab 701 - my county badge that's for serving on the firefighter rehab team

Regarding training/credentialing, several FEMA IS courses under the belt, along with a shelter management one from the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service. I'm also a Basic Life Support instructor with American Heart Association (BLS, CPR, AED, First Aid...).

Tomorrow evening I start City of Lewisville Police Department's Citizens on Patrol program.

We had another fire event on Monday - news coverage was light but a short video was captured: https://dfw.cbslocal.com/video/3912413-raw-video-brush-fire-in-denton-county-burns-vehicles/
