Could a unique partnership between students and a fire department boost retention and recruiting efforts? The new training officer for the Augusta fire department thinks so. Edward Hawthorne returns to C-S-R-A as the New Chief Training Officer for the Augusta Fire Department. He brings more than 20 years of experience from Atlanta and originally here from Fort Gordon and now hopes to partner with the Richmond County School System to address the shortage many departments are facing throughout the country, hiring and retaining quality workers. "As an EMT, they can be hired on in hospitals, nursing homes, even ambulances," says Hawthorne.
