The training schedule has been updated at www.erie.gov/fire to reflect these course announcements:
Erie County Emergency Services is pleased to announce ATV resources for First Responders.
Erie County Emergency Services is pleased to announce that all Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) within Erie County are using IAM Responding. Staff has worked with each PSAP to answer any outstanding issues or training requests.
The Erie County Fire Advisory Board is comprised of twenty-five (25) members who are appointed by the County Executive for a 2-year term, and who serve without compensation. While our members are from fire departments in virtually every corner of the county, none of us represent just one area of the county. More importantly, you have 25 board members who are dedicated to representing our entire fire service.
The “Best Practices” document provides sound, reasonable guidance to fire departments across the state as they develop their training protocols to not only comply with the state Public Employee Safety and Health directives, but, more importantly, to identify what training their firefighters need to complete based on their assigned task.
