Frequently Asked Questions

What is FirstForward?
Just like Vault, FirstForward was created exclusively to support public safety professionals. Currently, more than 25,000 first responders across 6,150 departments use their free FirstForward accounts to track exposures, training, certifications, field experience, and more. FirstForward also has a marketplace of 700+ courses, including 150+ free courses. For only $20 per person per year, FirstForward PRO provides additional tools that help departments manage policy document acknowledgements, administer performance evaluations, maintain private training catalogs, and track certification expirations.
