Welcome to the newly redesigned Indiana Fire Training Systems website. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security and Speed Limit media worked very hard to bring you a robust, easy to use system that you could use to register for training not only as Firefighters, but for all Emergency Personnel. Fire, EMS, Police, Hospital, EMA, and Hazmat can now register for an account, keep track of their trainings, communicate with others in their District and County, and keep informed about news and happenings around the state. http://indianafiretraining.com/

We are happy to announce that after forty years, the original Wayne Township Pumper #1 has returned home. The pumper was purchased new in 1941 and was the original engine to respond out of what is now Southwest Station 1, located in Waynedale. The 41 still has some of the Wayne Twp. markings on it. According to records the Alf was replaced in 1967. From there we're not sure of all the travels this truck made but we do know it made it to Texas and Arkansas. It was purchased from Jerald Burns from Palestine, AR. Jerald collects antique fire equipment and contacted us when he added the 41 to his collection. Jerald was kind enough to deliver the truck to us and we certainly appreciate all his help to bring the truck back home. As the truck progresses, we will post more articles on the web site. When finished, the 41 will return to it's original bay located at the rear of Station #1.
