Training 

The MCVFA provides training and education programs around the state on a variety of topics. The purpose of the MCVFA Training Committee is threefold. First, the committee promotes the MCVFA as the voice of the call/volunteer fire and EMT service in Massachusetts. The second purpose is to increase the membership of MCVFA. The final and most important purpose are to reduce the number of injuries and deaths of fire and EMS responders by providing training in safety and other fire and EMS related topics. This training takes place via workshops and programs covering a wide range of fields: administration, chaplains, health and wellness, Haz-Mat and emergency response.

The committee provides information to fire and EMS personnel in a timely, convenient and cost-effective manner. The committee strives to place classes near all call/volunteer firefighters and EMT’s, enabling the maximum amount of people to attend. Each year new workshops and programs are added, with constant critiques and reviews to discover what the volunteer fire and EMS services are looking for in training. The MCVFA organizes classes each year with many in attendance.
