2019 Firefighter Training

The BC Volunteer Firefighters’ Association 2019 Okanagan Spring Training Seminar will be hosted by the Lake Country Fire Department.

Volunteer firefighters of all levels of experience will gather in beautiful Lake Country to be challenged – physically and mentally – with a unique and diverse palette of training sessions.  Sessions will be delivered by industry and education leaders in the province – professionals, veterans and active firefighters. 

The 2019 Spring Training Seminar will give 300-400 firefighters a chance to share experience and knowledge with their brothers and sisters from throughout the province, see how other departments work, mentor junior members, and  enjoy a broad range of interactive and classroom sessions focused on various fire/rescue related subjects.
