txUNr># Around The Rotunda Move to Establish Guidelines for Training of Iowa Firemen By Harrison Weber DES MOINES — The Legislature is going to be asked to create a state fire service commission for the purpose of suggesting minimum training standards for firemen. Law enforcement officers across the state already are required to receive specific training, either at the state's law enforcement academy or at an approved vocational-technical school. The move to establish guidelines for standard training of firemen would be similar to that taken for policemen, except acceptance of the standards for firemen would not be mandatory. "We'd be in for a heap of trouble," said assistant state fire marshal Reynold Hentges "if we tried to start out with mandatory requirements." He explained there are over 10 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Oct. 26, 1970 20,000 firemen in the state including volunteers. Only 22 out of more than 900 cities have regularly paid fire departments. The idea. Hentges said, is to have a state commission set up standards for determining a "first class" firemen. This would serve as an inducement for cities and towns as well as firemen. There undoubtedly would be different classes, too, ranging from the metropolitan fireman to the volunteer in the smaller communities. Hentges served as spokesman for a committee of fire service personnel representing various organizations including the Iowa Fire Chiefs Association, Iowa Association of Professional Firefighters, Iowa Firemen's As­ sociation, Iowa Society of Fire Service Instructors, Iowa State University's Fire Service Extension Service and the state fire marshal's office. Their recommendation . parallels movements at the national level and in many of the states to establish training standards for fire service personnel. The proposed standards would be primarily concerned with in-service training, Hentges said, but the commission would be charged with making suggestions to institutions of higher learning on coordinating in-service training at their institutions for fire service personnel. A bill, patterned largely from a model bill prepared by the International Association of Professional Firefighters, is being drafted by representatives of the various Iowa organizations. Schedule for School Week Visits Given By Mrs. Carol Fair (Carroll Education Association) The awesome dilemma of today's schools and the need to "shape schools for the 70's" will be the focus of American Education Week to be observed in Carroll and across the country Oct. 25-31. Once a year, since 1921, schools throughout the nation have opened their doors during American Education Week for the public to come in and see firsthand what goes on inside the classroom.

On the other hand, you may be pleased to discover innovative programs of which you were not aware. Interested parents and citizens should do more than observe. Ask questions at the schools, of the school board, and of other officials. Give them the benefit of your recommendations and find out what financial support the schools are receiving. Find out who supports and who suppresses educational ad vancement and remember the significance of giving your support to legislators and political candidates who conscientiously work to improve the schools American Education Week is sponsored by the National Education Association, The American Legion, the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, and the U.S. Office of Edu cation. This national observance serves to increase public un derstanding and support of the schools.
