Veterans Offered Opportunity to look at Firefighter Training

Veterans to be offered opportunity to look at firefighter training.  An event to be held at the State Fire Service Institute at Urbana-Champaign on Sunday, October 27, will present opportunities in firefighting to veterans of the United States armed services.  Men and women entering firefighting service in today’s Illinois are trained for a wide variety of first-response tasks, all of which welcome the skill sets of our veterans.

This October 2019 event will repeat a presentation inaugurated by the Institute and offered to U.S. veterans in 2018.  The goal of the Fire Institute’s organizers is to bring experienced vets-to-firefighters service professionals into contact with potential trainees, so that questions can be asked and answered about firefighter training and careers.  Learn more here.
