IN-FIRE-NET Program - Polish cadet at Kissimmee Fire Department, Florida, USA

Autor: Arkadiusz Jelonek, student WIBP

Arkadiusz Jelonek, cadet officer of the third year took part in September 2016 in the internship training within the INFIRENET project (International Fire & Rescue Network) at Kissimmee Fire Department, Florida, USA. The town is located in the central part of the state, 30 km outside Orlando, and it has about 60 thousands residents.

Time spent in the US was a very valuable experience. Cadet Jelonek had the opportunity to see the daily work of firefighters, observe their behavior, the course of service and approach to the profession. In addition, he visited various places associated with fire protection. He was in Winter Park Fire Department, where he had a chance to drive “Tiller Truck” – over 15 meters truck which has two drivers, with separate steering wheels for front and rear wheels. He was in Crisis Management Centre which is placed in Cocoa Beach Fire Department - located at the Atlantic Ocean and N.A.S.A. Fire Rescue Services - a vocational Fire Service of the John F. Kennedy Space Center.

What is more, Cadet Jelonek took part, with the Fire Chief of Kissimmee, in the Meeting of Fire Chiefs of Central Florida and in the celebration of 9/11 ceremony during the Patriot Day Breakfast in Orlando City.

All these experiences have allowed him to compare the State Fire Service of Poland and the Kissimmee Fire Department. He also gained a lot of professional experience from both the firefighting operations, as well as medical interventions. Well spent time and great hospitality from American firefighters meant that it was a very effective month which will remain in his memory for  a long time.
