Guam - About 40 local firefighters spent the week attending a citation training course at the Guam Fire Department's headquarters. Officials say the course is long overdue and now provides them with the skills needed to properly give citations.
Course instructor Captain Ed Flores says all firefighters that are given clearance by the fire chief are actually authorized to issue citations, telling KUAM News, "A lot of people have wondered what authority, who are peace officers in the department. All firefighter personnel engaged in the enforcement of the fire prevention code."
The citation training concluded this afternoon.
