American Fire Technologies is committed to proper training for its technicians. Our recent graduate of Notifier training, Travis Harper, shares his experience with us: “As a technician in training I was taught how to assemble fire alarm control panels and learn what the components in the panel did for the system. Once becoming very familiar with how the panel components operate, I was sent to Georgia, to the Notifier Onyx training school. There I was factory trained, by Notifier, to program the main CPU for use. My training included programming the CPU to control certain points in the assembled panel to react to an input, such as smoke, and have it take the appropriate actions automatically to protect property and life. I was able to understand the material easily because of my previous experience and training from American Fire Technologies, this helped me place at the top of my class. On completion of the course, I am now able to program a fire alarm panel to do an array of functions according to what the customer needs. I feel confident in my abilities to give the customer exactly what they want due to the training I have received.” Thanks Travis for a job well done!
American Fire Technologies’ Shipping Manager, aka, SP/4 Garry Dunlow – RTO (radio man) recently attended the “1st of the 7th CAVALRY” – Nov 14-16, 1965 REUNION in Branson, Missouri. This reunion, May 3-4, 2013, commemorated 48 years after the battle of IA DRANG, LZ X-RAY, Vietnam. Once each year the survivors of the “Battle of IA DRANG” gather to reminisce and enjoy the company of fellow comrades, friends, and brothers, and to honor the battle’s 305 fallen soldiers. The “Battle of IA DRANG”, one of the first significant and bloodiest of the Vietnam War, was the subject of both book, We Were Soldiers Once and Young – written by General Hal Moore & API Reporter Joe Galloway, and film We Were Soldiers – starring Sam Elliot and Mel Gibson. During this year’s weekend long event the veterans visited a local military museum and attended numerous live performances & recognitions at local venues. One comrade, Vernon Harris, that the alumni had lost contact with since Vietnam attended this year’s event. Also in attendance were some of the active duty “1st of the 7th Cavalry” soldiers from Fort Hood, Texas. These soldiers, travelling on their own time and at their own expense, presented the “1st of the 7th CAVALRY – Nov 14-16, 1965” with a heartfelt certificate of honor and recognition. Click here for highlights and video (including real Vietnam photos) of this years event. American Fire Technologies is proud of its veterans and of all U.S. military servicemen and women currently serving and those who have served. Thanks to them for their service!
