The depth of knowledge and experience provided by West Coast Fire Training on fire behavior and fire attack are by far, the best I’ve experienced in my 27 years in the fire service. …. I have and will continue to recommend Lt. Ian Bennett and West Coast Fire Training as your first and only call for live fire training instruction.

That was hands down the best training event I have ever attended. It has left a profound mark on my confidence and abilities to lead my crew. Your cadre was excellent and always remained professional.... I have no doubt this training will save lives and build better firefighters.
