Welcome to Firefighter Proving Ground's new website!
First, we want to thank each member of our community who follows us on our social platforms. As of today, we have 100,000+ followers on Instagram, 50,000+ followers on Facebook, and 900 followers on Twitter. You followers are the foundation of our community and we can’t thank you enough!
Firefighter Proving Grounds, which was started in February 2016, was founded to form a new firefighter community for firefighters and the public that supports them. The material we post is aimed at motivating, inspiring, and teaching the next generation of firefighters, while showing the public the hard work all firefighters put in. Now that we have begun to build a strong community through social media it is time for our next chapter. Through our new website, we aim to bring you, our followers, better content more frequently.
FFPG is run by a small team of career firefighters who work in various fire departments throughout the Northeast. Our key members work for the New York City Fire Department within the Special Operations Command. Some of our FFPG team members also volunteer in their towns’ local volunteer fire departments. All our members have over 10 years on the job, are rescue specialists trained in technical rescue, and hold technician level certifications in every discipline. From the inception of FFPG our goal was to let the content speak for itself. This community is not about us, but rather about sharing information we have learned from our own experiences and those before us, and of course motivating all firefighters, especially the next generation!

Stay focused, stay motivated, stay safe!
