As head of the group, Martinkovic works with the state Office of Fire Control as the liaison to schedule fire training.
“As coordinator, my job is to assist in the scheduling and the requests of the local fire chiefs as to what their needs of what type of training they need for their members and to coordinate with the state so we get the right classes and we get everyone up to speed and we can work safely and provide good service to the people in our counties,” he said.
