L to R:  Christian Arildsen (brother), Dave Arildsen (father), Mitchell Arildsen, Lt. Mike Kowalczyk 

Mitchell Arildsen receives his yellow helmet on January 2, 2018 after completing mandatory Firefighter I training.  Probationary firefighters are issued a black helmet which signifies non-interior qualification.  Upon completion of Firefighter I, they receive their yellow helmet, which designates an interior firefighter.  Firefighter I training involves several months of classroom and hands on training.  This is the first major accomplishment of a new firefighter. 

Mitchell has successfully completed Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Nationally Certified EMT, and has obtained Pump Operator and Driver certification. The Arildsen family is one of several firefighting families within the department.
