Fire on the Plains is a collaborative effort to bring cost effective, high quality, hands-on training to the first responders of the eastern plains of Colorado. This year we have re-tooled some of our offerings and added a few that folks have requested. We are also partnering with Otero Junior College this year.
This event is designed to provide basic skills introduction to newer firefighters as well as giving the seasoned firefighter the ability to explore new concepts. Each session will provide the opportunity for students to work on specific Job Performance Requirements (JPR) for certification maintenance.
This year we have created focused tracks for the firefighter and the driver/operator. Students can choose from several multiday, full day, 4 hour and 2 hour sessions. The student may pick and choose which sessions they wish to attend. Students may attend for the entire weekend or just one day.
Meals are included in the price of tuition.
Sponsored by Colorado Wildland Fire & Incident Management Academy and Colorado Division of Fire Prevention & Control. Hosted by Otero Junior College.
We provide two training sessions during the year. One in January for our "Winter Academy" and the "Summer Academy" which is held the first week of June.
A preliminary schedule will be posted for the Winter Academy will be available late summer and the schedule for the Summer Academy will be available mid-winter.
This section of our web site will be updated with the current information for the next academy training as soon as we have it finalized.
