New firefighter passes probationary test


Costa Mesa Fire and Rescure Firefighter Corey Brean took and passed his final probationary tests this past week.

The tests include a written test and a map test where they demonstrate that they know the major streets, the hundred blocks, and target hazards in the city.

He also took a manipulative test where he demonstrated comprehensive knowledge of the city’s firefighting operations such as, hose deployment, ladder placement, rescue systems, auto extrication, and ventilation techniques.

Firefighter Brean performed exceptionally well and will finish probation in June.
