  1. I heard the buffs are on an intensive two week training program. They actually sacrificed their attending the "Night out against Crime" so they shouldn't need to lose training time. But rest assured they'll be back. It's possible we'll get videos on TLS quicker after this training program. I'm not positive but that's what I heard from a reliable source.

  2. Lakewood Fire Dept is a Mutual Aid Dept to that location. We are a border close enough and our response is required for such a large building. It is a response agreed upon by the Chiefs of the Brick Fire Dept in the case of a large incident there.
