The telephone fire trainer is a valuable teaching tool, ac- cording to Capt. Philip M. Shultz of the Shepherdstown Fire Department. The trainer allows firefighters to carry on a dialogue as they would over two- way radio and "it adds realism to the training", he said. The Shepherdstown Fire Department is assisting others in firefighter training. The department has three firefighters who are field in- structors for the West Virginia University Fire Service Ex- tension. Another serves on the adjunct faculty for the Fire Science and Safety technology degree program at Shepherd College in Shepherdstown. There are plans for the telephone trainer, which is portable, to be used by firefighters in the Tri-County area surrounding Shepherd- stown, including Virginia and Maryland, either at Shepherd- stown or at their respective fire stations, Capt. Shultz said. According to Calvin McGehee, General Telephone's district service manager in neighboring Charles Town, the telephone trainer is one of few in the country offering such versatility in training. Gary A. Henry, General Telephone switchman in Charles Town, built the  trainer following the design of John M. Kesler, General Telephone central office: equipment supervisor, also in Charles Town. Capt. Shultz said the trainer will allow firefighters in the area to receive "on-going" training which will support existing audio-visual materials. "When the fire alarm is soun- ded, area firefighters should be better able to cope with any emergency. The telephone trainer is one of the best training devices I've ever seen. The fire department and telephone' company have something they both can be proud of," Capt. Shultz added.
