The foundations established in the first year of a firefighter’s career will stay with that Firefighter throughout his or her career. The rapidly changing field of Firefighting and emergency services requires that Firefighters continue to develop new skills. It is each department’s responsibility to ensure that their members are trained to the best of their abilities. This responsibility should not be taken lightly.
The founders of FireOpsOnline encourage you to utilize a training book, such as the one we posted on www.FireOpsOnline.com (Probationary Firefighter page), every time Probationary Firefighters join your department. This document was prepared to assist you in developing a structured and organized format that your department can follow to ensure continual education and proper training of new firefighters. This book will also ensure consistency within your department. As with all of the information we post on our website, we give you permission to print this document and use it freely.
