www.fireacademysupply.com – Your source for fire academy PPE resources

www.fireacademysupply.com is designed to provide PPE resources to fire academies and instructors. Additionally it provides links to valuable information for fire students and people considering a career in the fire service.

Instructors will find online training videos that teach students how to care and maintain their PPE. Also they will find videos of fire service leaders discussing how important it is to care for PPE because it is a firefighter’s first line of defense. Increasing awareness in the fire service of the health risks associated with firefighting and avoidable safety risks means there is a gradual change in culture from dirty, tattered gear being the hallmark of a firefighter to encouraging firefighters to avoid unnecessary risks associated with personal equipment intended to protect them. The online training videos will assist instructors to support and facilitate this change by teaching new firefighters that they will be better equipped to do their job if their PPE is doing its job.

Other features for instructors are how to purchase discounted Lion Janesville gear and online ordering of PPE cleaning supplies if their school or academy stocks PPE for instructor or student use.

Instructors and students can view “Why I Chose Fire”, a video created by Fire 20/20 and sponsored by Lion Apparel. The video features men and women firefighters who love their jobs. They discuss the reasons that they selected firefighting as their career. The video is perfect for student recruitment programs or fire academy orientation.

For students, there are links to information about career assistance, fire academies and fire degrees, and fire departments and other organizations hiring firefighters and paramedics. They can also rent PPE for training if they are not affiliated with a fire department or the fire program they choose does not provide it.

www.fireacademysupply.com is a great source of information for fire instructors, students and anyone considering a fire service career.
