The BCFTOA Executive is looking to support the BC Fire Service during the current COVID-19 Pandemic and beyond.  We have developed an Educational Portal on our website to support the fire service training requirements with social distancing and/or postponement of department training.

Training may be reduced or suspended, but the expectation is still there for our members to be ready to respond and mitigate the emergency whatever that may look like.

We will continue to add resources, please feel free to share your resources with us so that we can post on the Educational Resources. 

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.

The British Columbia Fire Training Officers Association, more commonly referred as the BCFTOA, is dedicated to gathering information on training standards and providing this information to fire departments so they may effectively and safely train their members. In a world of ever changing standards and regulations, this organization provides fire departments with the most current, up-to-date course information and training requirements.  The BCFTOA will help develop, and support the work of those leaders and organizations in order that they may best provide training for members and affiliated Associations.
