IN-FIRE-NET Program - Polish cadet in Bedford Park Fire Department, USA

23-10-2014

From 2nd to 29th of October in 2014 cadet Lukasz Zubek took part in four-week internship program organized within Polish-American Project IN-FIRE-NET (International Fire & Rescue Network) in Bedford Park Fire Department.

Bedford Park is a small town with many industrial areas, situated in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Cadet Zubek was one of the firefighters in the department and responded all calls being on duty. He participated in many practices so he could gain useful knowledge and skills, to observe American colleagues in actions and cooperate with them in the scene.

During the stay he also visited Lisle - Woodridge Fire District, Posen Fire Department and Chicago Fire Department, where he was a member of a crew in Chicago Squad 2. He had also the chance to get to know American culture and visit the most famous parts of Chicago. Thanks to the Chief Sean Maloy and local colleagues he learnt about building constructions and fire prevention requirements in Bedford Park. Cadet Zubek made a presentation about the Polish State Fire Service and the Main School of Fire Service in Warsaw, which was well-received.

It was a great and valuable opportunity to share experiences, compare American and Polish firefighting services and cultures.
