or the third time in the last six years, a contingent of
volunteer firefighters from Greece had the opportunity to
learn strategies and tactics held at the Union Fire District
(UFD) Training Ground in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
AHEPA Yankee District 7's sponsorship of the training sessions
provided housing, transportation and meals for the visiting
firefighters. The 14 firefighters arrived October 22, 2017 and
spent the week exchanging ideas and strategies before departing October 29, 2017.
"It is vital for Greece's volunteer firefighters to
receive the best training possible, especially because
the country is no stranger to wildfires," Supreme
President Carl R. Hollister said. "I'm proud of the role
AHEPA has played to make their opportunity to learn
optimal training strategies and techniques a reality. I
commend District Seven."
The successful visit of the Union of Hellenic Fire
Service Volunteers was a complete team effort.
The NVFC and the UFD are committed to fostering relationships with the international fire service
community. This third expedition of the Union of
Hellenic Fire Service Volunteers to the UFD Training
Ground is a further testament to this mission.

AHEPA Yankee District 7 raised nearly $15,000 and worked
in cooperation with the National Volunteer Fire Council's
(NVFC) International Relations Committee to help make these
special training sessions possible.
Finally, the NVFC's International Relations Committee,
through the coordination of NVFC Board Member Kevin Quinn,
planned the sessions with the Union of Hellenic Fire Service
Volunteers. Under the direction of UFD Chief Steven Pinch and
