In late 2012, NYSAFC began offering its Regional Hands-On Training - Flashover program at locations across NYS. The three- hour program includes a one-hour lecture, followed by two hours of hands-on training in a mobile flashover simulator with some of the nation's most seasoned fire instructors.

It is said that if you're more than five feet from the doorway, your chance of survival in a flashover is minimal. Working in this program, you'll experience fire development from the incipient stage all the way to flashover. You'll be able to identify the signs of the event before you're part of the flashover. If you've never been in a flashover container, this program - staffed by America's most seasoned instructors with years of experience teaching with a simulator - is a must. Program includes one-hour classroom lecture, followed by intense live fire hands-on training evolution in the flashover simulator.

YOU MUST REGISTER USING THE FLASHOVER TRAINING REGISTRATION FORM FOUND ON THE RIGHT OF THIS PAGE.
