This year, the school will be held May 2nd-May 3rd. There are a few new classes, such as Large Area Search, along with our staple classes. Skill levels range as always from Beginner to Advanced, with topics ranging from ICS issues to Basic SCBA and Off Road Driving. The instructors come from across the country to provide us world class instruction on many different aspects of the fire service. A full list of classes is available at the bottom of this message.
We will be doing our annual shot gun shoot make sure if you are interested you sign up for a team. This is a very popular event, so please send us your registration. A copy of the registration will be available on the web site.

As always the site will bill your credit card upon finalizing your registration. A receipt along with our cancellation policy will follow your registration. Should you need to cancel please be sure to follow these instructions. Also, we will again honor the Wyoming State Fire Chiefs grant. If you are a Wyoming firefighter, be sure to indicate this when registering, and your registration will be processed at no charge to you.

A word of advice-Be sure to register in a timely manner. There are several other events occurring in town at the same time, so be sure to make your hotel reservations in advance.
Also, please carefully read the class description for any announcements regarding appropriate safety gear that will be required for each class.
