The RI Municipal Fire Academy Class #1 started RI’s first nine week basic training class on March 27, 2017. This very first class has been long awaited and will be conducted in its entirety at the RI Fire Academy grounds in Exeter. The brand new classroom, locker-room and office building will be used daily, along with the the training/burn building and other training evolutions and resources located at the fire academy.
This class includes thirteen candidates from multiple fire departments, learning the basics together for the first time. Once completed, each candidate will go back to their individual fire departments for further training and deployment.

As part of our public relations package at the Ryan Center, the RI Association of Fire Chiefs were so happy to be able to have Chief Fred Stanley, retired chief of 50 years at the Hope Valley Wyoming Fire Department, recognized as the First Responder “True Ram of the Game.” The recognition ceremony took place during the URI Rams Vs. Dayton basketball game on Friday night. RIAFC President, Chief Richard Petrin, escorted Chief Stanley to center court to receive his recognition to a rousing standing ovation while his achievements were broadcast to the 7,000 attendees.
Chief Stanley is one of URI Basketball’s biggest fans and we, the RIAFC, are some of his biggest fans so it all made perfect sense. The Chief’s family was present in the stands cheering for him. This was a special night for a special man!
