The Rogers (Ark.) Fire Department has enjoyed a happy partnership with Waldorf College that benefits several firefighters and fire officers since November 2013.
In recognition of this relationship, Waldorf recently honored Rogers Fire Department as Learning Partner of the Month for March 2015.
Waldorf representative Andrew Hanes presented the Learning Partner of the Month certificate to Chief Tom Jenkins who said he was very happy with the support Waldorf provides to his employees. Currently, the department has six students enrolled in classes and one graduate. Students praised the quality education they are receiving at an affordable price and liked the difficulty of their courses as they challenged them.
Jenkins thanked Waldorf for offering quality programs that prepare his firefighters and officers for continued success in the fire service. He said he looks forward to a growing relationship between Waldorf and the Rogers Fire Department.
Founded in 1888 as the volunteer Rogers Hose Company No. 1, the modern Rogers Fire Department is a completely paid organization with more than 120 full-time employees, seven fire stations, and a training center.
The Rogers Fire Department provides fire, emergency medical, hazardous materials, and technical rescue service to the City of Rogers and surrounding areas. Included in the Rogers Fire Department are the Field Operations Division, Risk Reduction Division and Training Division.
