The event is hosted by the Green River Firefighters Association and the KCTCS Kentucky Fire Commission/State Fire Rescue Training to provide firefighters access to professional development opportunities.

"We always have a great response to this event. While we are very excited to be able to offer these opportunities. It is also important to let our campus neighbors and surrounding community know that these activities are happening as an exercise, and that it is not a real emergency situation" added Jimmy Van Cleve, Area 3 Coordinator, and one of the event organizers.

More than 250 firefighters are preregistered for the event offering classes that range from basic essential skills to more advanced modern vehicle rescue and disaster planning. Saturday and Sunday are full day classes, with hands on activities taking place in the afternoon on the campus grounds at OCTC.
