"Wonderful.  Surprised that even though I am

a woman, the instructors, did not treat me any 

differently or think that I couldn't do anything.


Highly recommended."


B. Perkins

"I highly recommend the smoke and Fire Behavior class.  Phenomenal class taught by 3 outstanding instructors from Box 1971."


Capt. Graves

W.A.F.D.

"The Smoke and Fire Behavior class is taught by instructors with many years of experience and knowledge that is only seen in the streets and real life situations.  In this class you hear about real live fire and smoke behavior, that cannot be learned in text books.  Then you actually see it first hand.  I would highly recommend that if you have a chance to get training with Box 1971, that you do."


Chief Sullivan

"I think it is great that you guys (Box 1971) are moving the fire service values we need today.  Thank you!"

"Forcible Entry is an art, and becoming a lost art. In a very well instructed, rapid paced class these fu@k!ng guys showed us how to effectively and efficiently use our readily available forcible entry tools.  I highly recommended to guys who want to perfect the craft."


Senior Fireman/Paramedic Lee

B.F.D.

"My Firemen and myself found the Smoke and Fire Behavior class very informative.  I as the Chief, have been in the Fire Service for 20 years and gained knowledge from the presentation.  The class supplies you with a lot of up to date information that is useful and well worth the cost of the class.  You will surely get your money's worth."  


Chief Elliott

M.C.V.F.D.

"Teaches guys fire dynamics, and fire behavior without truly endangering them.  The money spent is well worth it.  You showed me things in my 15 year career that I have may have never seen."


Lieutenant D.E. Thompson

"Awesome training.  Great group of instructors."


Fireman High
