On Tuesday, July 15, 2014 Fire Inspectors Charles Maria and Erik Mickelsen assisted the Franklin Township Police Department during their Junior Police Academy. Chuck and Erik conducted a basic fire investigation and fire department operations classroom training module for the recruits. The young recruits were shown the basics of fire chemistry and how the science of fire investigation is utilized to determine the origin and cause of a fire. The recruits were also shown the capabilities of the Fire Prevention Investigation vehicle and a fire engine. The class also got to operate a fire hose line to better understand the mechanics of fire streams.
