A new training program has been announced for fire officers and others serving in a supervisory capacity during fire operations. The Company Officers Responsibility for Incident Safety (CORFIS) program is two and a half hours long, and assists in the understanding of NFPA 1561, Standard for Emergency Services Incident Management, and NFPA 1521, Standard for Fire Department Safety Officer.

NFPA and the Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA) of Ashland, Massachusetts have teamed up to promote this training, which offers guidance to a company officer in the initial stages of a fire incident. The program will be offered to the U.S. fire service. At the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) this week, materials were on display at NFA’s booth for all attendees to view.
