What our customers are saying

“As a Training Chief of a combination fire department, there has been a long standing issue of getting quality training into the hands of our busy members. Action Training Systems has made training easy to administer and even easier for our members to get the training they need. The online platform allows our members to learn at their pace and at a time that makes it convenient for them. Perhaps best of all, it allows more time spent on learning the hands-on skills needed to be a proficient responder. I highly recommend ATS to any department that is struggling with busy people who want the training, but may not have large blocks of time to sit in a classroom.”

Mike Moore, Chief Training Officer
Southern Stone County Fire Protection District, Mo

Latest News from ATS

Adapting to the New Normal in Fire & EMS Training

As an Fire/EMS instructor you must continue to move forward to satisfy your member’s training and certification requirements.  This training is imperative to improve skills, increase the safety of personnel, and by extension, the community they serve.  Despite the coronavirus, working from home is not an option for first responders!

Key Actions to Retaining & Training Volunteer Firefighters

It’s in everyone’s best interest in an organization to create a inclusive and supportive environment to encourage volunteerism in emergency services.  Providing accessible learning tools that members can utilize own their time or while on shift can help them keep up with their mandated training.  Providing good leadership, respect and appreciation will also help to keep them committed.
