The rural county does not have to be a paid FAREMS member in order to request training, however, we encourage membership for all rural counties.

The training will be conducted in your county at the location of your choice.  There is no cost for the training and some funds for overtime and backfill may be available.  All training must be completed by June 30, 2017.  Get a start on your 2018 renewal cycle!
