Training Program Gets VA The Shelton Fire Department received word this week its training program has been approved by the State Labor and Industries for Veterans training. Under this program, Veterans may draw an allowance for a two-year period assisting them financially to become Fire Fighters. A two year program with 4,000 hours of training in all phases of fire fighting has been set up by Chief Allan F. Nevitt which qualifies as approved training. Nevitt reported he is very pleased with the acceptance of this program as it will help recruit more mature family men into the Department. "In the past, we have lost good men because of the low starting wage and I believe this additional financial aid will help us to keep these men," commented Nevitt. "There are no openings at the present time but qualifying our Department under State and Federal pro~ams should help us get more applications for our future examinations", he continued.
