Outreach Training Programs

The OFPC Outreach Training Programs consist of courses that are taught:

  • locally, with emergency response personnel trained annually by state fire instructors, municipal training officers, and county fire instructors. Allocating and scheduling fire training activities is conducted by the County Fire Coordinator; and
