Introduction and background

Each year in January, the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy (UFRA) conducts a fire training school in St. George, Utah. Winter Fire School (WFS) is an event that has evolved in scope and size. It is considered to be one of the largest of its type in the nation. Beginning more than 20 years ago with just three formal classes and less than 100 students and instructors combined; WFS has grown to more than 70 classes and over 700 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 60 vendors representing major fire, rescue, safety, and EMS equipment sales and service companies from throughout the United States.
