Word on the street is that Norm is furious with those clowns at ISU putting on "training." Fire Depts. are supposed to come to his 1st Responder Training Academy, and pay a fee for training. Instead, ISU opens the door of their building to this AREA 7 fire dept for FREE. The taxpayers of Terre Haute have wisely invested over $1 million in the first repsonder academy, mostly for the training tower that ISU and Shepherdsville VFD are choosing to ignore. But not for long. Watch Norm go after these clowns.

So, why would Norm care if these volunteers were training in the building anyhow? From what i know Norm is NO longer in charge of the "THFD" Training program. For volunteer fire departments to get an opportunity like this is great. All i wish is that more departments could have been involved. But if Watson II was involved i can see why others were not. I am surprised that Black Diamond (the FDNY) of vermilion county was not included since that is Watsons main mutual aid.
