The Chino Valley Fire District and the Central Yavapai Fire District conducted a joint training academy for firefighter reserve recruits during the past three months. On Sunday, May 19, 2013, recruits put on a Family Day to show what they had learned, using the realistic scenarios made possible by Central Yavapai's Regional Training Academy in Prescott Valley. All 31 recruits made it through the training and graduated on Saturday, May 25, 2013. Photos by Heidi Dahms Foster.

Special to the Tribune

Chino Valley resident Kyle Audis this past Saturday was a member of a distinctive graduating class. He was one of the 31 recruits in the largest training class ever run by the Central Yavapai Regional Training Academy. The other distinction is that all 31 recruits made it through the tough training to graduate.

On Family Day, Sunday, May 19, recruits cooked up a barbecue for their families and then donned turnouts to show them what they had learned during three months of training.

The recruits demonstrated scenarios in which they arrived at a fire scene, evaluated the situation, pulled hose, entered the structure, rescued fire victims, and safely extricated themselves and their fellow firefighters from the building.

Audis found out how much he needed his fellow firefighters when his gear caught on a window through which he was trying to escape. His colleagues helped him out and all reached safety.

The joint academy helped replenish the pool of reserves for both agencies.
