Message from the President



Welcome to our website!


Since 1996 our non-profit organization organizes training and ride along programs with fire departments across the United States and Canada.

It is our goal to familiarize rescue workers from Belgium and The Netherlands with the operational procedures of our American and Canadian colleagues.

These educational trips are always combined with a touristic program for the participants to get acquainted with the wider region where they are guests.

The success of this formula is shown by the fact that in the meantime we have been active for more than 15 years, and we organize up to 4 trips per year.

Through this website we try to put our activities in the picture. You can find travel reports and any useful information about the non-profit organization Fire Observers . You can get acquainted with our dedicated group of board members, who makes each ride-along program a unique experience.

Again, welcome to our website , enjoy reading and we hopefully see you soon!


Marc Opstal
