Issues in the improvement of training for fire fighters and officer personnel were taken up in ten symposium papers.

Papers from the other sessions dealt with state and national fire training programs, weaknesses in American fire service education and training, ambulance and emergency programs, college programs, fire fighter and fire officer training in the United Kingdom, and training concepts and strategies used by the United States Forest Service.
