The Vista Fire Department would like to congratulate Firefighter/EMT Kyla Whalen on completing "Firefighter Assist & Search Team (F.A.S.T.)" class at the Westchester County Fire Training Center in Valhalla, New York.

Firefighter/EMT Whalen completed the 15-hour course described as the following by New York State:

"The firefighter as a member of a FAST operation will identify the tools and staffing requirements for a FAST operation, develop a rescue plan for a missing, lost, or trapped firefighter; demonstrate rope search techniques, and demonstrate removing a firefighter/victim up a stairwell, up or down through a hole in a floor/roof, moving a downed firefighter down a ladder. This course requires students to perform a number of practical evolutions with self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)."

All training is free of charge to the members of the Vista Fire Department and Volunteers are needed! For more info on how you can become a member call: (914)-533-2727, email us at, visit or apply online here:
