Courses included “Fire-based EMS Leadership,” “So You Are Chief: Now What?” “Truck Company Operations: It’s Not Just Breaking Things,” “Where Did All the Rules Come From? Management & Administration of a Fire Department,” “Firefighter 1 Refresher & Live Fire” and “Fire Alarm and Fire Sprinkler.”

These courses are not offered at the county training facility and are taught by highly qualified instructors, according to the Sullivan County government website.

A prime-rib banquet was held on Saturday night, where the instructors sat and ate with the students and continued networking on any and all fire-related topics.
