Today’s Salute to Service is local telecommunicators Kayla Ridings, with the City of Greenville, and Taylor Huels, of the Bond County Sheriff’s Department.
Kayla and Taylor recently attended the 2023 Dispatcher Hands-on In-service training at the Illinois Fire Service Institute in Champaign.
Dispatchers performed Auto Extrication, Hose Handling, Ladder drills, and additional hands-on training. Both suited up in turnout gear and airpacks and went into a burning training tower to fight a fire.
Thank you for both for your service to our community!
