Veterans in the Fire Service Day - Future Members of the Fire Service : 8.00-10.00 Hours

Course Description

Veterans interested in learning more about a career in the fire service will benefit from a day of hands-on, live fire training activities.  Students will engage with an elite group of IFSI instructors, many military veterans, who will introduce essential firefighting skills.  The goal of morning activities will be to develop fireground familiarity, comfort and competency.  Students will spend the afternoon working with veterans currently employed in the fire service as they team up as members of a company to complete fireground scenarios and evolutions.  Loaner firefighting personal protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) will be available to students.  Advance reservations for gear are preferred.
