For the small community fire department, cost-effective training and education are more important than ever considering today’s challenging economic environment and the need to retain volunteers. The RFA’s on-line programs provide rural-specific firefighting knowledge combined with the flexibility volunteer firefighters need to learn at their own pace. The RFA has two course offerings immediately available for enrollment:
The Rural Firefighting Operations Online Course: This 20-hour online course is designed for rural firefighters who want to learn much more about effectively handling day-to-day operational challenges found in the small-community fire department. The Rural Firefighting Operations Online Course is not suggested to take the place of accredited Firefighter I or Firefighter II training courses. It is intended to complement those courses by providing additional important information to improve the performance of rural firefighting operations. This course is a must-have for fire officers, firefighters, pump operators and new recruits.
Drafting Eductors — TurboDraft — Improving Water Supply Series: This two-hour online course is designed for fire officers, firefighters and pump operators. This learning program covers why a rural fire department should consider using fire eductors; the principles behind how they work; and their potential uses and benefits. It reviews a detailed process for fireground deployment including real-world field tests to prove eductors are an important asset in improving water supply from draft. It includes student study materials in PDF, and a Skill Sheet suitable for use by the department’s training officer for student evaluation in fire eductor deployment.
