The 2018 FOTP was a great success providing critical hands-on training in and out of the classroom. Seventy-eight attendees came from 27 fire departments across Colorado and southern Wyoming. A variety of 2 and 4-hour sessions were offered (27 total) from interior & basement fire attack to scene size up, grass fire 101 and driving simulator. Six members of the Eastern Colorado Type 3 IMT, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention & Control (CDFPC) and 18 instructors from other fire departments provided great oversight and instruction for this event. We would like to thank our hosts the Sterling Fire Department and Northeastern Junior College (NJC) along with assistance from CWFIMA, CDFPC and the Colorado Fire Departments providing instructors. The 2019 FOTP is being planned for Otero Junior College in La Junta, Colorado; dates to be determined.
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.
Summer Schedule will be published in early March.
