BlueVolt, the leading provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the construction, manufacturing and service industries, was chosen as an online training provider to Vision 20/20, a national organization dedicated to fire prevention practices.

Vision 20/20 is a grassroots effort to improve fire prevention practices run by the nation’s leading fire chiefs, fire fighters, fire marshals and members of agencies and associations dedicated to fire protection. While most fire safety efforts in almost all fire departments are continually under-funded and under-staffed, the Vision 20/20 steering committee is guiding a national strategic planning process for fire loss prevention that involves a large number of participants representing all areas of fire prevention

Vision 20/20 is utilizing BlueVolt’s innovative Learning Management System to train fire and safety professionals with courses ranging from model evaluation measures for fire safety programs to community risk reduction planning. Vision 20/20 plans to expand its online training initiative with additional courses, and a partnership with the International Fire Safety Training Association to increase participation and training on the BlueVolt platform.

Jim Crawford, project manager for Vision 20/20, recognizes the importance of a solid Learning Management System in helping the organization achieve its fire prevention goals. “BlueVolt has a great deal of experience and expertise in online training that we plan to incorporate into our training efforts for fire service and related safety professionals - to achieve increased fire prevention,” said Crawford.

 “We are excited to partner with Vision 20/20 to help them improve fire safety training through our Learning Management System,” said Kelley Shirazi, national account manager for BlueVolt. “Online training is a fast, efficient and uncomplicated way to ensure the latest fire safety and prevention education is relayed to the important men and women who risk their lives every day to fight fires.”
