SAN DIEGO – TargetSolutions, the leading provider of online training and recordkeeping tools for public safety agencies, is excited to announce it is teaming up again with the IAFC’s Volunteer & Combination Officers Section for the 2015 Training Officer Recognition Award.

The award is designed to acknowledge outstanding performance by a chief, training officer, or other individual acquainted with training who has exhibited innovation for firefighter training, a commitment to best practices in training, and operational effectiveness at their department.

“The opportunity to work with the VCOS to recognize one of its members for going above and beyond in their role as a fire service training officer is something we are honored to do,” said TargetSolutions’ Executive Vice President Thom Woodward.

“This award is about honoring an individual for their dedication to delivering exceptional firefighter training. TargetSolutions is focused on helping firefighters become more prepared for the challenges they face through quality training. We see it as a great privilege to work with the IAFC and recognize an individual with that same goal.”
