Training

On-Site Equipment Orientation and Training:

FireVent, LLC provides on-site equipment orientation and training for all FireVent units, which is included in the price of each unit. A representative from FireVent will come to your location, when the unit arrives, and go over all aspects of the unit and its equipment. We will set the unit up with you and your staff and answer all questions until everyone present is comfortable and confidant in its use. The operation and use of a FireVent unit, and its equipment, is basic and easily understood.

 
Hands-On Ventilation Training:

Our ventilation training is comprised of highly trained firefighter instructors from across the United States (see instructor bios below).  Each instructor has many years in the fire service and a vast amount of knowledge and experience. Their experience comes from the areas they work, amount of fire duty, training background, professional attitude and work ethic.  There are no egos within our instructors and we pride ourselves with that attitude. When we teach, the approach we use is not yelling at students or intimidating them, it is with strict confidence building and answering or addressing every question.  We take the time to help each student. We strive to deliver the best, top quality ventilation training available.

Everything that can be taught on this subject will be covered with the department.  We will adhere to their SOP/SOG’s and show them other ways to safely complete the ventilation task.
