Origin

New England Fire Training was started by Manchester NH firefighter Chris Grover in 2016 with a vision to provide continuing education to firefighters with the ability to train to all levels of skill. After meeting Chis in 2017 and learning about Chris' passion to help fellow firefighters, Hinsdale NH assistant Chief Troy Benedict approached Chris to join the team. Working together the partners have begun to build a company devoted to helping our brothers and sisters advance their knowledge and careers by traveling with our mobile training maze.
