In cooperation with our public and private partners - as one team, with one voice - achieve excellence in everything we do through effective communication, coordination and resource management. Virginia Department of Fire Programs is comprised of regional offices operated by dedicated staff along with the Virginia Fire Services Board, working together for the good of Virginia's fire and emergency services community. VDFP coordinates and delivers specialized training across the Commonwealth to emergency response personnel at no or minimal cost. 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 structural firefighting, Aircraft Rescue & Fire Fighting, HTR, and the Virginia Fire Marshal Academy. VDFP integrates training and education to enhance the professional development of fire and rescue personnel. This integration of educational support is accomplished through public and 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.
