Just Added! Fire Corps in Disaster Response Online Training, April 28

Sign up to participate in the live webinar training FC-301: Fire Corps in Disaster Response to see what role Fire Corps volunteers play in disaster preparedness efforts. The course is free and lasts one hour. Participation is limited to 30 per session, so sign up today!

When: Thursday, April 28, at 11:00 am EDT

How: Register for this session and additional Fire Corps Academy courses at http://nvfcfirecorps.wpengine.com/education/fire-corps-academy/.

Course Description: FC-301 provides information and activities that can be used to train fire department personnel and/or Fire Corps volunteers who are overseeing or who will oversee or manage a Fire Corps program. This session is designed to show how Fire Corps fits into a community’s disaster response efforts. Because Fire Corps teams already assist fire and EMS departments in their duties to keep the community safe, Fire Corps volunteers can also be used to start, improve, or enhance a fire department’s disaster response efforts.

Additional Courses: Can’t make it to the April 28 training? FC-100: Introduction to Fire Corps, FC-200: Starting and Implementing a Fire Corps Program, and FC-301: Fire Corps in Disaster Response webinars are scheduled for May 6. Register for these sessions at http://nvfcfirecorps.wpengine.com/education/fire-corps-academy/.  Subsequent trainings will be available both online and in person throughout the year, so stay tuned to the Fire Corps web site for announcements.

About the Academy
The Fire Corps Academy is a series of free training sessions and resources designed for Fire Corps program managers, department leaders, and local Fire Corps volunteers who wish to start and/or participate in a Fire Corps program. Department personnel and Fire Corps program coordinators can benefit from the training to learn about different aspects of implementing, managing, and expanding a local program.
