EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Forte Holdings, the leading provider of healthcare software solutions, has signed on to be the primary sponsor of the 2013 Volunteer Firefighters Academy, an annual training program run by the El Dorado County Training Officers Association.
The training officers association is made up of representatives from all the fire departments on the Western Slope of the county. Along with sharing training resources and information, the association organizes the Volunteer Firefighter Academy each year for the purpose of turning new volunteers into qualified firefighters. The volunteers undergo 160 hours of training during a five-month period in order to give crucial support for fire stations’ fire and emergency medical services.
“We created our iPCR application to enable first responders to care for the people they rescue as effectively as possible, so it’s only fitting that we extend that mission by committing our support to local firefighters’ second line of defense,” said Anthony Schwartz, president of Forte Holdings. “Some stations have more volunteers than they do career firefighters, and some are completely staffed by volunteers. Because of that, volunteer training organizations like the academy are absolutely vital to our communities.”
This sponsorship is just one of the firefighter-related philanthropic activities in which Forte Holdings has engaged over the years. The company’s outreach efforts have also included the Leary FireFighters Foundation, the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and the G.W. First Responders Charitable Foundation, among others.
