JUNE 23-25, 2017 8:30 AM

Hosted by the  Centerton Fire Department  755 W Centerton Blvd, Centerton AR

A Mayday event is a low frequency event. It may never happen in your career OR it may happen today. Unlike other training, your only experience in handling the MAYDAY may only come for real life scenario based, hands on training.  This program will provide command officers the experience needed to manage the MAYDAY.  Meanwhile, rapid intervention teams will sharpen their strategic and tactical skills needed to save a brother or sister. On the final day of the program everyone will be challenged by a series of physically demanding, gut wrenching MAYDAY EVENTS. Remember, in a MAYDAY EVENT. You have one chance to get it right! This program is physically and  mentally demanding.  SCBA and full PPE required for all participants.
