If you're interested in participating in our next interactive MITFFAD event this will take place in August 2019 (date coming soon!) at the City of Carlsbad - Carlsbad Safety Training Center located at 5750 Orion St., Carlsbad, 92010! You can sign up above! A typical MITFFAD event day begins at 8:00am with completion around 2:00pm after lunch. Here's how it works:
20 active military members transitioning out of the armed forces into civilian employment are paired for an exciting day of firefighting activities!
10 Teams are sworn in as firefighters for a day and participate in firefighter training simulation drills (strategic, tactical and operational drills are similar to authentic fire drills but absent fire elements. Respirators are used in simulated “candy smoke” rescue drills).
Teams will be debriefed by Chief Hebert after the days events, share lessons learned, share educational and employment needs, and offer/share other resources & opportunities; if available.
