3. Mark Your Calendar and make plans to attend the required training for the program. There are 2 programs that must be completed. The fire department chief MUST attend a "Chiefs Familiarization Training."
Additionally the Program Manager MUST attend the "Chiefs Familiarization Training" as well as the "Program Manager/Facilitator Training." The Program Manager is the person designated by the Candidate Department’s Fire
Chief to administer and oversee the Recognition program. This may be a sworn or
non-sworn member of the department or may even be a community volunteer. In
some departments the Program Manager may be the Fire Chief. Look at the Training page for upcoming training opportunities.
