Collision Repair Students Again Take Part in Fire-Safety Training


Collision repair students again take part in fire-safety training Two sections of first-year collision repair students recently participated in a “Shop Fire Safety” demonstration and training session at the Williamsport Bureau of Fire training area on West Third Street. Fire Inspector Tom Swigart once again conducted the training and hands-on exercises for both classes, which included the opportunity for each of the approximately 40 students to handle, operate and become familiar with various types of fire extinguishers found in the collision repair lab in the CAL building. Leonard R. “Flip” Filipkowski, associate professor of collision repair, again made the arrangements for his first-year class (ABC 101), as well as instructor Stephen T. Duna’s ABC 120 class.
