VDFP piloted this two-part program at The Virginia State Firefighter’s Conference earlier this month and will again offer this program in two upcoming regional fire schools:

The program will be delivered in a train the trainer type format where we provide you educational materials and reference materials. This will allow departments to deliver training to better protect their members. In development is a resource web page to store these materials. Students may bring flash drives to obtain most of the materials before the end of class. Learn more about the program.
