Fighting Fires…and More!

Posted Apr 17th, 2018 by Julian Johnson  Category: Education


The Lourdes University Lifelong Learning program is pleased to offer “Fighting Fires…and More!” with instructor Joe Walter on the following Wednesdays: May 9, 16, 23 and 30 from 12 to 2 p.m., at various classrooms on the Lourdes University campus. This class explores how the Toledo Fire Department embraced and instituted changes that occurred from the late 1960’s through today. The final meeting of this class will be held at the Toledo Firefighters Museum for a guided tour.

The Toledo Fire Department still has the same mission since its inception in 1837: saving lives and property. How that mission is accomplished has changed dramatically over the last 40 years. Technological changes, the explosion of Emergency Medical Service (EMS), public education, special operations, equipment and safety are some of the topics that are covered.

The course is presented by Retired Assistant Chief Joe Walter who was a member of the Toledo Fire Department from 1972 to 2002.

Cost: $58 members; $70 non-members
