The Vista Fire Department would like to congratulate Firefighter/EMT Candidate Ryan Huntsman on completing his probationary period in the Department through the VFD Mentor Program!

Since joining the Vista Fire Department, Firefighter/EMT Candidate Huntsman has completed driver training on our Ambulances, is in the process of becoming a cleared driver on Engine 142 and is currently enrolled in the EMT Basic course. Firefighter/EMT Candidate Ryan Huntsman actively participates during calls & drills and has been mentored throughout his probationary period by Firefighter Dan Gjodesen.

The Vista Fire Department Mentor Program is a process where new members are paired up with a senior member to help guide them through their probationary period in the Department. This program was developed to help transition new members into the Department by understanding call response, attending weekly Monday drills and preparing them for classes they may be taking in their first year with the Department.
