The Vermont Fire Academy has been closely monitoring the evolving situation presented by COVID-19.  We have been in continuous communication with the Governor’s Administration, the Department of Health, and the rest of the Department of Public Safety to ensure that we are taking appropriate actions to protect our students, instructors, and staff.  We will continue to follow the guidance of these experts in the interest of public health and safety.

Effective immediately, all Vermont Fire Academy courses and programs are postponed until at least April 13, 2020.  We will be evaluating whether we can continue serving our students remotely during this period, however, there will be no in-person class sessions taking place.  We will be sure to keep you informed as we move forward.

We understand that this situation poses a significant inconvenience, however, we know that these measures are necessary for the protection of all.  We will be working to secure the success of our students who are currently enrolled in programs in a safe and effective manner.
