Training Officer Resources

The Division of Fire and Life Safety encourages fire departments throughout Alaska to provide high quality fire training to their members. One of the primary missions of the Bureau of Fire Accreditation, Standards and Training is to provide support services to fire departments and other fire training organizations.

Quite often we act as a clearing house for fire training programs and materials. If you have developed a great program please share it with other organizations around the state.
