Logan firefighter promoted to training captain

Shively, ten-year department veteran, says previous training experience will help.

LOGANSPORT — A ten-year veteran of the Logansport Fire Department will soon become the department’s training captain.

The Logansport Board of Public Works this month approved Fire Chief Mark Strong’s request for the promotion of Bradley Shively to training captain.

Strong said Shively has been a member of the department since May 4, 2002. Shively is a firefighter I/II, emergency medical technician, hazardous materials technician and rope rescue technician.

“As training captain, he will coordinate training, keep records up to date and make sure the guys in the department keep up on their certification,” Strong said.

Shively, who was born and raised in Logansport, said he has enjoyed working at the department. He has received plenty of experience in the nearly eleven years he’s worked there, he said.

“Other than being at the department for that length of time, I was with Cass County ambulance when it was here,” Shively said. “I have that extra EMS experience.”

Shively spent more than seven years as an emergency medical technician for Cass County EMS and covered calls throughout the county, helping people in need.

Mayor Ted Franklin, who is on a leave of absence from the fire department, said Shively will be great. Franklin has been a firefighter for almost 23 years and worked with Shively at the department.

“He is very into training, especially with EMS and rope rescue,” Franklin said. “He’s the next guy in line, is great at what he does and he was very interested in the position.”

Shively, a former U.S. Marine and Iraq war veteran, said he has experience training. He was previously an instructor as a Marine.

“I’m very much looking forward to it,” Shively said. “I think the fact I have outside training instructing experience is the biggest thing I’m bringing to the table.”

Shively said he will be training staffers in the fire department on individual trips through technical rescue. He’ll also complete other tasks, he added, including coordinating with outside entities such as factories and schools.
