    When I spoke to the Fire Marshals Office last year they stated to me (then anyway) that people could choose to put in for the new Certs if they had everything done already or complete the remaining classes to obtain the new cert. But that it was not going to be a requirement.
    The success of a fire department depends on the willingness of its members to put aside their differences and work for the benefit of the dept/community.
