2014 EVIP 2.1 Regional Training - The Fire Training Center
The Washington Fire Chiefs and WFC Fire Training, Safety & Officers Section are proud to announce that the new Emergency Vehicle Incident Prevention (EVIP) program is approved and in motion! After a laborious update process the new program has been approved by the State Department of Licensing and the Washington State Patrol, Fire Protection Bureau.
The new program now has a trainer re-certification policy that requires trainers to have a Train-the-Trainer (T-t-T) refresher course every 5 years. Those who have been trainers under previous EVIP standards will still need to receive this most current T-t-T course and use the current course materials to remain a certified EVIP trainer.

At the conclusion of another successful training conference in Yakima this year, the board would like to take a moment to thank the many individuals who made this event successful. There were some people that you saw frequently, but there were many others that operated behind the scenes perhaps for many months to make this event successful.
We would also like to specifically acknowledge the sacrifice of those board members who have recently retired from their respective departments or have moved on to other endeavors, Lloyd Hazzard, Bryan Pearson, Gregg Sieloff, Vic Pennington and David Dodge. The board recognizes that it has been your hard work that has moved this organization to the place we are now. We thank you for your years of dedicated service to your community and to the members throughout the state whom you represented. We will continue in the path you have set this organization on, and we will make it even better for the next generation.
It is the boards desire to continue to improve this conference each year. We want departments across the state to recognize the value of this conference and have them eagerly enroll their staff each year...
