Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services (LFES) hosted the Nozzle Forward program in collaboration with other fire departments across Alberta and Saskatchewan. For the past decade, this two-day, 20-hour program has been one of the most sought after fire training programs in North America as it emphasizes efficiency through modern firefighting techniques.
This past weekend, LFES was able to host 51 firefighters from all over western Canada. These fire fighters came from small town volunteer departments to large city departments. Armed with this knowledge and these techniques, any firefighter from this program will be more effective in fulfilling their obligation to protect their citizens.
