Please be sure to follow the directions for signing up, especially setting the primary fire department correctly (see below) so you can get credit for completing the trainings. 6 courses were assigned back in March 2020. Since then, UL has released others making the total couses available 13.

The Fire Safety Academy is designed for the fire service, but registration is open to everyone, at no cost. To register, visit the Sign Up page, provide your name, a valid email address and password.
