The 2020 Maine State Weekend Program at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland will take place on March 27-29, 2020. This will mark the 32nd Maine State Weekend held at the National Fire Academy.  We will be joined by our colleagues from Florida and Indiana again this year.

There are 11 courses offered this year and accommodations for 240 students for the weekend program from all three states.

  1. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! A current /valid Maine Driver’s license is all that is required for admission onto the NFA Campus for the March 27-29, 2020 Maine State Weekend Program.
  2. The NFA requires that all students who register obtain a SID (Student Identification Number) that you will use in place of your social security number. If you do not already have a SID, the process is very easy!  The link is mentioned in the brochure, but I am attaching it here as well. https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid/Register.aspx ~ you just click on this link and it will take you directly to the page where you will fill in your demographics.  Then click the submit button at the bottom of that page and you will instantly receive your SID number in your email.  It is that easy!  If you already have a SID….. use that number….., DO NOT SUBMIT FOR A NEW SID NUMBER.

Use your SID number on the FEMA (short form 119-25-2) application that needs to be signed and submitted, along with your signed Maine registration form.

  1. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FLYING: If you are planning on flying down to the National Fire Academy for the Maine Weekend Program, please note that the NFA NO LONGER provides ground transportation to and from the airport.  You will need to arrange your own transportation both ways. If you are flying, you still need to submit your flight itinerary to me with your registration.  Any questions, please contact me.
