TRAINING is "the process of bringing a person . . . to an agreed standard of proficiency . . . by practice and instruction" (thefreedictionary.com). Training is the heart of the individual who desires his/her colleagues to consider them a true firefighter. Training is also a TRADITION of the fire service and one the F.O.O.L.S. place as a high priority.
F.O.O.L.S. International is committed to sharing what has been passed on to us to those in the fire service who desire to learn and master the trade, who desire to be considered firefighters. We produce our training videos for you to use free of charge and encourage you to pass them on. We recognize each fire department and region of the world has preferences on how to conduct specific tasks, so we show what our preference is and ask you to abide by the policies and guidelines issued by your department.
We welcome constructive feedback and would love to hear how one of our videos has helped your training program.
Enjoy this month's video and go train.
Secretary, F.O.O.L.S. International
