Vancouver Island Fire Fighters Association 2016 Fall Training

Fall Training 2016 will be hosted by the Courtenay Fire Department. They have offered VIFFA members the use of their new Training Centre as one of the venues for the great course line-up this November. The highlight of the facility is a new live fire training building. Constructed from cost-effective sea containers, the building offers natural gas fire simulation and artificial smoke, and the ability to turn the fire on and off by a switch. Movable walls and floor plans can simulate a residential home, hotel, motel, or commercial building. The building also features digital fire technology which provides safe and comprehensive hands-on training using realistic, self-generating digital flames that respond directly to the trainee’s actions.

For schedule information and full details, please download the FALL 2016 VIFFA NEWSLETTER below:
