About our Instructors
Our instructors have a variety of different backgrounds and experience that range from working for the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to some of the busiest Truck and Engine companies in the Northwest. Our members have backgrounds in USAR, military, and building construction. Most of our instructors started as volunteers with small, under staffed rural and suburban departments before they joined their career departments.
All this leads to well rounded instructors who have been in your shoes and understand how to replicate real world situations with industry standard tools of the trade, fabricated training props, and acquired structures. You will be able to leave our classes and put these new skills to work the next day- no matter what size your department is. You will be able to sit at the kitchen table of your firehouse the next morning and share this info with your brothers and sisters, essentially helping us accomplish our mission.
