We now have 32 members fully trained as trainers within the IAFF 3rd District. These 32 trainers will now go out into the New England States and train our members to help us make the job we do a little safer.

President Andriole and RISAFF would like to acknowledge and thank the 4 members of RISAFF that attended this training and our now certified.

Jeff Bayuk and Joe Danato, East Providence Fire Fighters Local 850.

Mike Rivelli and Mark Walsh, Cranston Fire Fighters Local 1361.

Congratulations to our peer trainers!

We look forward to them training all our members within RISAFF in an effort to insure that all our members return home safe and to their families at the end of a shift.

In addition to their ability to train our members, we also have access to the $200,000 mobile training trailer and equipment to be utilized while training is conducted within your Local.

RISAFF would also like to thank the IAFF for their commitment in helping keep our members as safe as possible at all times.

We will have more details to come regarding the implementation of the life saving training.
