The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is developing a youth training guide as part of its health and safety initiatives. Core Competencies for the Junior Fire Service will be completed by summer 2012 and will include competency and training recommendations for junior firefighter programs. The NVFC is seeking training drill examples from departments to include in the guide. Submit your training example for a chance to win a $100 gift card to use for your junior firefighter program’s activities.

The goal of the guide is to instill the B.E.S.T. practices for health and safety in junior firefighters, before they ever step foot on the fireground. Training and drill ideas will focus on non-operational, safe activities that build skills needed to be a first responder. Accompanying video and webinars will also be available on the web site. The selection of drills for inclusion in the final guide will be based on adherence to safety and the ability to be performed at any station nationwide. Departments can submit multiple ideas, but should use a separate form for each activity. For each activity selected to be included in the guide, the department will receive an entry into a drawing for one of two $100 gift cards.

Share your activity today. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 15, 2012. For an example of training drills that will be included in the guide, click here.
