The Third Annual Fire Training Symposium is scheduled for the weekend of August 1 - 3, 2014. We are currently working on finalizing our instructors which will have a direct baring on this year's venue.

The Pikes Peak Training Consortium is composed of Training Officers, area Chiefs, and Firefighters interested in the training agenda of the PPFFA. The Training Consortium meets on the third (3rd) Wednesday of every month at 1800 Hrs. at the Colorado Springs Fire Department Headquarters Building on Printers Parkway in Colorado Springs.

The PPFFA Fire Rehab Services recently purchased four (4) replacement high intensity LED scene lights from ROI Fire, one of our supporting business members in the Denver area. Two of the lights will replace the old scene lights on our Emergency Services Support Trailer that were used up during the Waldo Canyon Fire last summer, and the other two came with detachable tripods and were mounted to Rehab Squad 52.
The new lights are extremely bright and were first used at the Highway 24 / Big R hay barn fire last month, one day after being mounted and placed into service. The addition of these new lights should provide yet another resource to our area emergency responders and can be requested through the El Paso County Sheriff's Office Dispatch requesting Fire Rehab and they will automatically be available when Rehab Services are on scene. If one of our member agencies needs scene lighting and would like to keep their response equipment IN SERVICE, consider calling Fire Rehab for their new lights.
The PPFFA Fire Rehab Group now has a new home and base of operations. On Saturday April 21, 2012 both response squads and all support equipment and supplies were relocated to The Donald Wescott Fire Station #3 (old station #2) at 15000 Sunhills Drive in the Glenneagle area of Colorado Springs. For the moment the Emergency Services Support Trailer will be located on private proberty until an adequate location for storage can be determined. The PPFFA greatfully appreciates The Black Forest Fire District for their years of support and gracious use of their facilities, and we appreciate the Donald Wescott Fire Protection District for their support and facilities, and we are looking forward to a long term relationship. This move to Wescott Station 3 is like moving back home . . . Wescott Fire was the inspiration, motivation, and contributor of the "BUS", our first response vehicle.
