Structural Fire Training
The National Park Service’s structural fire suppression training program was formally awarded accreditation through the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications, more commonly known as Pro Board. Learn about training opportunities, and get an inside view on the 10-day NPS National Structural Firefighting Academy. Defensive Firefighting is another new addition to the training program. It helps wildland firefighters train to safely attack structural and vehicle fires. Meet some recipients of NPS structural fire program awards, as well as two cofounders of the structural fire training program.
