What began as a way to bring fire service instructors to the students in our region, has evolved into an event that now features students from all across the country who continue to seek out quality hands-on-training regardless of its proximity to home. We are grateful to see so many firefighters in and out of our region attending MHFC and similar events focused on firefighter training around the US. Regardless of how the conference has grown, our goals remain the same: Provide high-quality training at a reasonable price while supporting those that support the fire service.
We currently partner with Terry Farrell Fund who provides assistance to active Colorado firefighters and their families in times of need, and Fire Nuggets whose goal is to help create competent, effective, aggressive, and efficient firefighters through high quality training and education. Through MHFC and our partnerships, we hope to see continued growth and improvement in the fire service.
