Dunsmuir, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2011 – This month marks the launch of FireWhat University, a series of training classes to be offered by FireWhat Inc. The company will host California State Fire Marshal curriculum courses and other emergency service training classes at its Dunsmuir, California headquarters. The initial class offering will include Fire Command classes, Basic Pump Operations, Basic Emergency Vehicle Operations, Basic Life Support and Community CPR.
FireWhat is excited for the opportunity to host these classes in Dunsmuir. Bringing students to one of the best-kept secrets on the West Coast will help the local economy. FireWhat has teamed up with local restaurants, lodges, and businesses to provide package deals for students while they attend classes in Dunsmuir. Students can enjoy the stunning landscape, great cuisine and unparalleled hospitality of this small town. Hiking, fly-fishing and world class skiing are just a few of the recreation options that students can take advantage of in their downtime from rigorous training with FireWhat’s first-rate instructors.
Over the next few months, FireWhat will broaden its offering of firefighter training courses. The intent is to bring together students and instructors in a new type of environment. Course offerings will focus on helping students make the next step in their fire career. In the near future FireWhat will offer courses in an online format to make every class available to every firefighter, no matter their location.
