I would like to take a moment and recognize Chief Terry Plumb and the entire 2020 Missouri State Fair Fire Department for a job well done, under circumstances none of us could have imagined a few months ago. The department made the best of the circumstances and took advantage of reduced fair operations to accomplish a significant amount of training. I was able to relocate my office to the Missouri State Fair Fire Department for a few days giving me the opportunity to interact with the crews and provide some training on NFIRS and other topics on an individual basis.
Recently, the Missouri Division of Fire Safety acquired a side-by-side live-fire sprinkler demonstration trailer. We conducted our first test burn on August 22, in front of the Pepsi Grandstands at the Missouri State Fair. We plan to bring this trailer to festivals and events throughout the state in the coming months. Information on how to request this trailer demonstration for an event in your area, along with host agency requirements, will be distributed in the next few weeks.
