Dane Fire Department-Annual Training Plan

The goal of this training plan is provide a list of general themes that should be covered on an annual basis and that relate to firefighting in the Dane County area. Each year a theme is scheduled to be presented, the desire is that a different topic from the year before, or a different approach be taken with the same material to introduce variety and another perspective to the theme being covered.
