Alabama Firefighters Training Foundation Inc.
Until the formation of the Alabama Firefighters Training Foundation Inc. in June 2022, we have carried out the efforts of this foundation through the local initiatives of Port City Fire Training LLC.
The Alabama Firefighters Training Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The organization has 3 programs:
1. Mobile Training Unit - Our Mobile Training Unit will be a fully equipped trailer with truck transport, that will contain all of the fire equipment necessary for any department in the State of Alabama to hold trainings at all levels. For a nominal fee and fuel, our staff will deliver the unit to the department, and will retrieve the unit once the training(s) have ended. Additionally, our staff consists of national fire training professionals, so we can also work with the department to help with their training goals.
2. Annual Fire Training and Conferences - Our Alabama regional and statewide conferences will make it possible for firefighters to have access to this same training, within their own areas. As with larger national conferences, our Alabama based events will have the same national training experts, and our registration fees will be nominal.
3. Rural and Volunteer Training Events - The training events will be similar to the annual training events and conferences but smaller. These events will also many times be held on weeknights so that attendance is easier for volunteer firefighters since volunteer fire departments typically hold their regular training nights on week nights. These events will be offered at a nominal fee or free of charge.
Training should not be compromised or suffer due to lack of resources or funding which is why Port City Fire Training is committed to providing free local training each year.
We bring the classes directly to you which eliminates the need for local firefighters to travel.
Top instructors from around the country are brought in to facilitate.
We are proud to have hosted one free local training event each year since 2019! We are excited to announce that even though we have already hosted one free class in 2021 we are finalizing the details for a second this year!
Stay tuned for more details!
Providing Equipment & Training Props
Training doesn't have to end when Port City Fire Training completes a training program.
We are committed to making our training equipment and props available to local firefighters and fire departments so that the training with current and future firefighters can continue.
