Date & Time
Thursday, July 23, 2020, 3:15 PM - 5:15 PM
Making training a priority in volunteer or mostly volunteer fire departments can be a struggle. This can lead to catastrophic results such as an increase in risk for injury and/or death and failing to meet the expectations of the communities they serve. This course will help the firefighter determine the need for training for themselves and their department, and how to make it the leading priority. Topics to be discussed include organizational training needs and expectations, selecting a training officer, training program delivery, and personal responsibility in maintaining a healthy training environment.
