Training in a volunteer Environment
An article in Fire Engineering


Many volunteer fire and rescue departments find it difficult to plan and carry out a training program. In developing and delivering a training program in a volunteer environment, consideration must be given to the following: the training audience, scheduling and frequency of training, delivering training that is meaningful and relevant, incorporating measurable results, addressing regular and special training needs, responding to imposed training requirements, maintaining accurate records of training participation, and formal training vs. in-service training conducted in stations. Consideration must also be given to meeting specialized needs, improving the service the  department provides, and members` attitudes.
