The most enduring gift any person can give is knowledge - the tool you never lose and never wear out.
In these especially difficult times with budgets being cut to the bone it's critical that firefighters continue to get the

In that spirit True North has established a scholarship program that provides fire departments up to $3,000 each for

The best part is that True North will bring the training to the scholarship recipient's fire station.
