Structural Fire Training

The National Park Service Structural Fire Program is committed to protecting all structures entrusted to its care, and the people and collections within, and is working to meet and exceed its requirements through consistent ongoing education and training with an emphasis on prevention.

It is one of the goals of the structural fire program to ensure NPS employees, partners, and concessionaires are properly educated and trained to carry out their structural fire duties and responsibilities by continuing to support and deliver existing training programs, continuing to assess the Service's structural fire training needs and develop as needed, and to identify and apply emerging and cost effective technologies to facilitate/deliver training and education programs.
