We are so happy for former BDHQ trainer, Brittney Tannock, who just completed her Professional Firefighter Program at ESA (Emergency Services Academy) in Sherwood Park, Alberta.

She was in a class of 24, with four other girls, with people from all over Canada, including the Northwest Territories, Halifax, BC, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. It was a 12 week course running from August - November. She recieved her NFPA 1001 and 1002's, as well as a certificate in Wildland Firefighting, Hazardous Materials Operations and a Certificate in Pumping.
From Brittney herself: "It was without a doubt the most physically and mentally challenging thing that I have ever done and I loved every minute of it. What a roller coaster!"

Now Britt waits patiently to get hired on at a fire department. Any of them would be lucky to have this fit chic on their team. I personally have her on speed dial for any such emergencies. It's in her blood too - her dad was a fire Captain in Nanaimo until he retired. He must be so proud of you, and so are we Britt!! Hopefully we can get her out to teach some fire fighting worthy Bootcamp workouts this winter...
