NSVFA Fire School

Nebraska State Fire School

MAY 16-17-18, 2014


Welcome to the 77th Nebraska State Fire School. This year’s school will consist of 29 classes in all phases of firemanship, fire investigation, rescue and fire safety, leadership, fire prevention and recruitment and retention with several new classes provided.

Fire School books are being processed now and approximately the week of February 24, will be mailed to departments across the state. At that same time, the class descriptions and registration form will be posted on this page. This provides an equal chance for departments to receive the information at approximately the same time for pre-registration.

Pre-registration opens March 17, 2014, and closes May 2, 2014. Fire Departments are encouraged to take advantage of pre-registration which will give department members a better chance of being able to take the class of their choice. It is also suggested that department members attend different classes so that the knowledge taken home will span a variety of educational concepts. Walk-in registrations at Fire School will be accepted for a class on a space available basis only.

PPE and any special requirements will be detailed in the class descriptions that will appear in the Fire School book and on this NSVFA web site. Please read the class descriptions carefully to understand what is involved in the class.
Some of the classes will have limited numbers in the classes and will limit the number of students who may enroll from one department. This is to allow numerous fire departments to gain from the experience of the class.

This year, the school is excited to bring Jim Heine, State Fire Marshal to the Opening Ceremonies as keynote speaker. ADAPT Management, formerly the Redden Group who is helping the NSVFA manage the NSVFA’s $1,956,000 SAFER grant will also be on site during the school to answer questions about the S.T.R.I.V.E. (State Tuition Reimbursement as Incentive for Volunteer Emergency Responders program) and fire service leadership training associated with the grant. Three “Retention and Recruitment” leadership classes have already been conducted with the fourth planned as a Fire School class and another planned for August 23-24, 2014 in Omaha. At least four more of the R&R classes will be scheduled in 2015 and 2016.

The NSVFA in conjunction with Ball Insurances are proud to present 2013 recognition awards for Firemanship, Heroism, Fire Prevention and the Browning Award all of which will be awarded at Opening Ceremonies. Departments and auxiliaries are encouraged to bring gift donations for the Browning award recipient to the Fire School office prior to the Ceremonies. Applications for these awards must be submitted by March 22, 2014 and forms may be found on this web’s site form page at

The NSVFA and Nebraska State Fire School Committee encourage all Fire and EMS personnel to take this opportunity to gain valuable training for use in protecting your communities and your own department staff. We look forward to many participating in Fire School and reaping the benefits of this experience.
