VDFP training programs also provide the opportunity for professional development with comprehensive, nationally-accredited training courses for career and volunteer emergency responders in specialized areas including:

  • Incident Management
  • Heavy & Technical Rescue

VDFP integrates training and education to enhance the professional development of fire and rescue personnel. This integration of educational support is accomplished through public/private partnerships. VDFP serves as a fire/rescue training delivery and certification agency in collaboration with academic fire programs to provide an efficient path for fire service professional development. The focus of these providers is to align the Virginia professional development pathway with emerging national models. VDFP is designated by the Virginia Emergency Operations Plan as a member of the Virginia Emergency Response Team (VERT). VDFP provides technical overhead and hazards support to communities in need during emergencies of all types. VDFP maintains seven divisional offices across the Commonwealth. These strategically located divisions align with other COV public safety agencies and provide a manageable span of coverage for time sensitive emergency-deployment of resources.
