    Default ARFF Training

    The Fire Science Academy at University of Nevada Reno is revamping their ARFF program. On November 2-4, 2010, they will be offering three 8-hour refreshers, along with a course on Aircraft Firefighting for Structural Firefighters. Vendors will be present, and they are working on getting some demo trucks. Their goal is to turn this into an annual ARFF training/show. See attached links:
