Back to Blog November 19, 2014 You Know You’re From Region 1 When… Your idea of an island getaway is taking the Block Island ferry to Heavy Equipment Operator Training…in February. You spend those lonely, cold Maine winters creating elaborate ice sculptures. You carve your pumpkins with a chainsaw against a backdrop of colorful foliage. You name your operations after pivotal moments in American Revolutionary history. E.g. Operation: Midnight Ride in Revere, MA. You hold trainings in towns your west coast instructors cannot pronounce (ICS 300 in Billerica, anyone?) You consider silkies proper attire in any weather. The disaster zone may be miles from home, but you never forget your roots. The Admin I'm The Admin! This author does not have any more posts.
