The West Valley Regional Fire Training Consortium (WVRFTC) was founded in 2012 in response to the reduction of training resources and staff availability within fire training divisions throughout Yolo County. The UC Davis Fire Department set forth the preliminary framework of the Consortium and led the effort to establish local partnerships. By July 2012, three additional fire departments joined the association to improve the safety and well-being of their local communities. Currently, the Consortium is comprised of the UC Davis Fire Department, West Sacramento Fire Department, City of Davis Fire Department, City of Woodland Fire Department, Yocha Dehe Fire Department, Dunnigan Fire Protection District and Winters Fire Department.
The West Valley Regional Fire Training Consortium’s (WVRFTC) overriding mission is to identify, develop, and provide high quality training programs and opportunities designed to enhance, augment, and advance affiliate fire agencies.
Through partnership and collaboration, provide the necessary research, evaluation, and recommendations for new products, innovative techniques, and procedures necessary to maintain the safest, most efficient and effective work environment possible for affiliate fire agencies consistent with nationally recognized best practices, recommendations, and mandates.
