"First Responder has made an amazing difference in our organization over the past 7 years.

I was skeptical that first year, but looking back I can see the performance gains made every year with Mark's guidance on what matters.

Today I can say that we've internalized his training and coaching. I get pretty excited when I see a 5-year veteran sharing a training point with a rookie...and I know it was an issue that Mark first introduced for our benefit."

— Tim McSherry, Jefferson County IMT

our experience


For the past 15 years, we have supported dozens of exercises and incidents of significance, most typically wildland fire, but also including numerous all-hazards events as well. Our approach is based on actual, real world experience. As line officers, we experience what you experience on a day-to-day basis, so we know what's real and what's not.


What do our clients expect from us?


High quality, engaging and relevant training of personnel


Development of easily deployable communications plans and systems


A product-agnostic approach to system and product evaluations, recommendations and solutions


Our commitment is to find out what works best for you, based on your actual and anticipated needs, regardless of whatever pitch a particular vendor has thrown at you.

"Only on The Salmon" – Mustang Complex, 9/1/12, near Salmon, ID. No matter the burning conditions, when your lottery permit comes up to raft the Salmon River into the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, you go. The Salmon served as the southern border of the 325,000 acre fire which was patrolled by jet boat – a relatively new addition to the firefighting tool box. Author unknown.

dont forget: dispatchers are first responders too
