The credibility of the S.A.F.E. Program rests on properly trained firefighters. The high quality of the fire and life safety education specialist is the foundation of the S.A.F.E. Program. The fire educator's enthusiasm and commitment to the S.A.F.E. Program and its students are critical. The Massachusetts Firefighting Academy offers a variety of training programs for fire educators, including a week long class Public Fire and Life Safety Educator that is based on the standard set out in the National Fire Protection Association's Standard 1035 Professional Qualifications for Public Fire and Life Safety Educator.
Grant Writing Boot Camps: These courses will help attendees develop the skills they need to complete the FY 16 S.A.F.E. and Senior SAFE grants.
