Due to the current economic conditions, many governments are invoking “no travel” policies.  Even though the National Fire Academy reimburses the cost of travel to and from the campus and provides the training and a dorm room at no cost, some governments are not making any exceptions.  No travel means “no travel at all, no matter the cost or value.” As a result, the number of applications is “down” from last year’s application period.


The application period for the second semester of National Fire Academy resident classes closes December 15 – YOU HAVE 6 DAYS TO APPLY.

All information about courses, applications and suggestions for successful completion of the application can be found at the following sites:
