The Des Moines City Council recently approved senior fire medic, Tony Sposeto, to travel to Washington, D.C., from Feb. 4-9, to attend the JEMS Conference and Exposition, which is considered to be a highly regarded conference with many key classes that offer innovative training ideas for emergency management service personnel. Education programs promise to address training for new recruits, which is particularly relevant for the city’s new recruit class, according to the city manager. The training also is said to provide useful resources for field training. This comes at a $1,645 cost to local taxpayers. CV
