The year 2016 was another success for volunteer firefighters.  We had 230 firefighters from Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi in attendance and they received over 4000 hours of training.  It is hard to believe that we are now in our twelveth 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 .

The dates for 12th annual Event are September 13-17, 2017 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 location for the Landing Zone class.  We have use of their classrooms and the Student Services Center  for our lunches, banquet, breaks and our vendor displays.

We look forward to you joining us this year to make this the best year, yet!
