The year 2015 was another success for volunteer firefighters. We had 232 firefighters from Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi in attendance and they received over 4200 hours of training. It is hard to believe that we are now in our eleventh year and the staff is working very hard to provide you with the best training ever. If you have any suggestions for classes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .The dates for 11th annual Event are September 14-18, 2016 and we will be offering many new classes for you to choose from. For complete details on registration, course schedule, course descriptions, lodging, and much more, please click on the "Event" tab above.
Also, this year S-130/S-190/L-180 will be returning. This class will start on Wednesday and end on Sunday.
The annual Event is held at the Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, Florida. They have an area for drivers training which will be available for our EVOC class, and a burn building for the Live Fire Evolutions. We have use of their classrooms and the Student Services Center for our lunches, banquet, breaks and our vendor displays.
