The National Fire Academy (NFA) works to enhance the ability of fire and emergency services and allied professionals to deal more effectively with fire and related emergencies. Free training courses and programs are delivered at our campus in Emmitsburg, Maryland, online and throughout the nation. Created as a result of the seminal document, America Burning, the NFA delivers training to more than 50,000 career and volunteer fire and EMS personnel on an annual basis. This presentation will give attendees a great look inside the NFA, share the various training and educational opportunities that are available on an on-going basis free of charge, discuss the processes for getting involved.
