Firefighters Support Foundation Inc.

These free firefighter training programs usually include a video and a Powerpoint presentation. Many address advanced fire service topics or topics that are not often covered. Others reinforce the basics. They are targeted at both agency trainers and individuals.

Turnkey training. Agencies can use the programs by using the Powerpoint slides as distributed notes, running the video presentation, and pausing the video frequently to discuss the material presented. In this way, the training is consistent from session to session, trainer preparation time is greatly reduced, and the training is completely documented.

To be notified of future programs. Please send a note to with your comments on any of our programs. If you want to be notified when we post new programs (about every two months), include your email address.

Problems downloading? If you have trouble downloading a file, the problem is most likely intermittent and temporary. Please try again up to 24 hours later before notifying us that there's a problem.
