The Hovland VFD held a night time training: A Speedy Delivery truck had caught fire and the manifest showed the flammable materials on the truck. This training was held on North Road.

All departments were called and responded. Fire Trucks and STOP Team were sent since the report stated that the driver had left the scene to call the fire dept.  This training, lead by Training Officer Joe Peterson, was a review of the coordinated effort and needed skills to maintain readiness.
