2019 Course Schedule

This course will be taken in conjunction with the Basic Safety Training Refresher course. During scheduled classes, BST Refresher will run on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday while Advanced Fire Fighting Refresher will be on Thursday and Friday.

 
This two-day course provides refresher training for officers assigned specific duties and responsibilities related to fire fighting leadership and command. Additionally it will reacquaint the student with the National Integrated Incident Management System (NIIMS), fire suppression planning, incident strategies and associated tasks.
