    Michigan has adopted a class from the University of Maryland for its Fire Officer I and II programs. It deals with pretty much everything you are requesting. It is a very intensive class and very informative.

    I am currently enrolled in the Fire Officer II program and still learning more even though it is the same Fire Officer command book.

    You might check with your state training council and see what they have to offer.

    Good Luck

      You may want to recommend Oklahoma State University's masters degree in fire and emergency Management, It is essentially the same degree as what a city manager has but has the emphassis in the special issues that face the fire service. Budgeting, Human Resources, Public Management, Program Evaluation are some of the generals, but the specifics are Emergency management, risk assessment, Administrative law, fire and emergency services.

      Any interest in the program can be directed to me at

        The Eastern Carolina Firemans Association has a seminar in Hamstead (Wilmington Area) on the weekend of Oct 11-12. They have classes in fire attack, Leadership, command etc. Very good school and Hamstead has a really good training system.

        You can get more information by calling 910-270-3069.

          Here's one......

          Try www.MFRI.org

          Lots of good stuff there. I would also sugguest that any training that you do can, and should, be referenced to the National Pro Board Certification requirements. You will be doing a big favor to your students. Stay Safe....
