EMS & Fire Training

GVFRS conducts fire and EMS training each month. While some classes are designed specifically for our members, many of our classes are open to other regional department members as well as the general public.  In 2008, GVFRS completed the renovation of an old meeting room into a state of the art classroom complete with computer presentation systems, high speed internet, audio, and video systems. This facility is available to other fire/EMS organizations to conduct open training courses.
