GlobalFire/GlobalMedic Cross Canada Rapid Response Training Day
In October, GlobalFire and our operational partner, GlobalMedic, will run their second annual Rapid Response Team Cross Canada Training sessions. These sessions are for GlobalFire and GlobalMedic volunteers in Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia. If you live in a neighbouring province or territory, you are welcome to attend these sessions. These training sessions are a prerequisite for GlobalMedic and GlobalFire RRT deployments. If you are not yet a GlobalFire volunteer, you can sign up here. If you have already taken part in a past Rapid Response Team Training session, you are welcome to take one of these courses as a refresher. Recruits will spend the day rotating through interactive stations that will train volunteers on GlobalFire procedures, policies and protocols, emergency water purification, medical infrastructure support and deployment procedures.
