For each fire and rescue employee who signs up for access to the company’s free online training network, FirstForward, from April 15-30, 2016, Envisage has pledged to donate one dollar to NFFF. FirstForward is the nation’s first Professional Training Network for first responders. It aggregates training courses, making them readily accessible to first responders across all disciplines. The FirstForward platform includes a private online community in which first responders share insights and best practices. Envisage donations will be directed to Foundation programs that honor the fallen, assist their survivors, and help prevent future line-of-duty deaths and injuries.
“We are honored to support NFFF. They are an amazing organization that aligns with our core values,” said Envisage CEO, Ari Vidali. “We are passionate about readiness, increasing the quality and diversity of professional first responder training, and ensuring that every firefighter has access. That is why we launched FirstForward, a space where firefighters access quality training from providers around the nation and increase their chances of making it home safely at the end of each shift.”
“The generosity of companies like Envisage helps us fulfill our mission of honoring our nation’s fallen firefighters, providing assistance and resources to their loved ones, and offering programs and training to fire departments to prevent line-of-duty deaths and injuries,” explained Chief Ron Siarnicki, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We appreciate their commitment to raising awareness and funds to help support our programs and services.”
Donations from Envisage to NFFF will be based on the number of firefighters and rescue personnel who sign up at www.firstforward.com or at the FirstForward booth (Booth# 13113) at the FDIC Conference in Indianapolis, occurring April 18-23, 2016.
