LSC and the Duluth Fire Department team up for safety
Lake Superior College and the Duluth Fire Department teamed up to burn household items to demonstrate the importance of having a working sprinkler system in your home and/or business. The burn took place earlier in October at LSC's Emergency Response Training Center.

Sprinklers "buy you time to get out of the house," LSC instructor and Duluth firefighter Heath Weirsman said. "It's safer for you; it's safer for firefighters. By having a sprinkler system you are going to save a lot more of your home," if not your life. Check out these great pics in the Duluth News Tribune, as well as the story on Fox 21.
Firefighting and Truck Driving Open House to be held at ERTC on November 12
Speaking of firefighting, the first open house of the academic year will highlight LSC's Firefighting and Truck Driving programs on Thursday, November 12. Prospective students will have an opportunity to tour the Emergency Response Training Center (ERTC), check out the equipment and trucks, learn about the application process and more. The Advancement and External Relations team has been working closely with the team at the ERTC to organize this event. To keep the event student-focused and to adhere to COVID-19 related guidelines and restrictions, the open house is designed to accommodate pre-registered, small and socially-distanced tour groups and to be used more as a marketing opportunity for these programs rather than with the goal of having a large turnout at any one time. There will be very limited staff and instructors present and most have aready been involved in the planning process. Space for guests will be limited, tours spaced out and RSVPs are required. If you know someone who may be interested in learning about these exciting programs, please encourage them to RSVP.
Lake Superior College's co-ed clay target team wins conference fourth year in a row!
Congratulations IceHawks! LSC's co-ed clay target team has clinched their conference championship for the fourth year in a row. Plus, the top four female shooters in the conference were all LSC IceHawks, and two of the top ten male shooters were also IceHawks. Very impressive! See the MCAC standings.

The IceHawks wrapped up their season yesterday as they competed in the MCAC Regional Championship Tournament, against all qualifying colleges in the MCAC league. For the first time in league history, the championships were conducted virtually, meaning all schools were shooting at their home ranges and submitting their scores electronically. The conference will announce final results on Thursday, October 15. Way to go, IceHawks!
