Introduction and Background

Each year in mid-January, the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy (UFRA) conducts a fire training school in St. George, Utah. Winter Fire School (WFS) is an annual event that has evolved in scope and size. It is considered to be one of the largest of its type in the nation. Beginning 15 years ago with just three formal classes and less than 100 students and instructors combined; WFS has grown to more than 42 classes and over 1,000 students, instructors, and support staff. WFS also boasts a large vendor show which includes demonstrations with state of the art firefighting, rescue, and emergency medical response equipment. The vendor show has grown from just a few local fire equipment dealers to more than 32 vendors representing every major fire, rescue, safety, and EMS equipment sales and service companies from throughout the United States.
