UPDATE:  2020-MAR-19

Fire Service Community,

We are connecting to provide you with an update on what’s happening at VIERA during this uncertain time.

First and foremost, we send our thoughts to you firefighters and staff as you all navigate the frontlines of this situation.

We have cancelled upcoming face-to-face courses, and we will continue to monitor the situation going forward. Until the situation becomes more predictable, we are holding off from scheduling dates to deliver unscheduled face-to-face training.  

The VIERA Team is healthy, and we’re happy to continue to serve our departments, at this time, as well as provide information about our programs as needed.

As always, we are available at

Thank you very much for your commitment to VIERA and for your service to your community,

The VIERA team
