The Illinois Fire Service Institute is offering a unique, no cost professional development program to veterans interested in serving as a member of the fire service.
As part of their 3rd annual Veterans in the Fire Service Day, US Armed Forces veterans are invited to register to attend a day of hands-on, live fire training activities on Oct. 11.
The Veterans in the Fire Service Day will offer two training schedules for students.
Veterans interested in learning more about a career in the fire service will engage with an elite group of IFSI instructors, many military veterans, who will introduce essential firefighting skills.
Meanwhile, attendees currently working in the fire service industry will engage in live fire conditions, working cooperatively with IFSI instructors.
There is no cost to attend and free lodging will be provided for attendees. Registration is required as space is limited. Click here to learn more or to register for the event.
