MFSA has purchased and strategically distributed this equipment throughout the region to FPAAC member agencies. Regular training opportunities for the FPAAC agencies with this equipment is a critical compnent of the program.
With 13 Fire agencies across two states and over 100 miles of river, proper planning and preparation is essential. FPAAC has implemented plans and committees to review and update existing procedures to ensure a unified state of readiness.
