IAFC/Saudi Aramco Cohort Graduation

Sacramento County, CA – In January of this year the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) approached our organization with the opportunity to enter into a partnership and sponsor a Fellowship Program with the Saudi Aramco Fire Protection Department, a privately-owned fire department located in Saudi Arabia. At the writing of this release the seven (7) cohorts have concluded their six (6) months of imbedded training. A private awards ceremony occurring at approximately 1200 on June 13, at Metro Fire Headquarters with members of the IAFC, Saudi Aramco and Metro Fire command staff will be the conclusion to this program. We are confident that the training and experience of working side by side as the fourth firefighter on our Engine Companies met the primary mission of giving them a hands on look into our structural firefighting culture and gave them an experience that they will bring back to Saudi Aramco FPD, aiding them in their structural firefighting capabilities and growth.
