a hands-on experience returning to Denver – October 5-7, 2018


Simply put, we want to create a platform to bring high-level classroom and hands-on training to Colorado firefighters. As departments and firefighters realize an ever-increasing cost affiliated with sending people to national conferences and trainings, they have been scaling back on the number of people able to experience this type of learning. Through this conference, we will help individuals and departments gain invaluable training opportunities without ever having to leave the Denver-metro area…thus allowing more people to get the training at a lower cost to everyone.

THANK YOU! On behalf of everyone here at the MHFC, we are so humbled by the enthusiasm, excitement, learning, fellowship, inspiration, and work displayed by all of you last weekend. These attributes give us all great hope about the direction of our fire service, and we can’t wait to see you again next October! (or at any number of gatherings before then).

2017 Conference:

Conferences with intents like ours cannot happen without the generous support of some sponsors. We are thrilled to be working with the following like-minded people and businesses to bring this training to you: The Home Depot, Serve The Line, Columbia Southern University, Fairway Mortgage, Northwest Roofing, BMC West, Elkhart Brass, California Casualty, Firehouse Subs, Hurst, TNT, Canvas Corners, HD Signs, Zac Varela, Front Range FOOLS, 5280 FOOLS, NOCO FOOLS, and Tactics On Tap.

With a firefighter friendly registration fee of only $250, the conference consisted of hands-on training on truck company, engine company, and extrication skills. The can’t-miss instructor lineup was broken into different topic specific tracks (listed below), allowing you to focus your time and energy on things that you want to learn about.

The 2017 instructor cadre included: Brian Brush, Ben Ojinaga, Ben Shultz, Cody Trestrail, Brian Olson, Ryan Royal, Bryan Lynch, Dave McGrail, Dennis LeGear, Matt Fullerton, Jesse Wooten, Jason Haley, Chris Piepenburg, Ross Reinking, Adam Woodin, Justin Sinnett, Kevin Contreras, Ryan Thomas, and many others!

The 2018 conference will include a Friday lecture series followed by a evening event, and then two days of hands-on training. We are working on the 2018 schedule, with instructor announcements happening here and on our Facebook/Instagram feeds.
