Training Division Overview
The Training Division is responsible for the initial training and continuing skills development for all firefighters including Fire, rescue, and EMS continuing education and recertification. Our goal is to provide and maintain the highest quality emergency service through training which results in safe, effective and efficient operations.
The fire service today is markedly different from the service that existed just a few years ago, Increased demands have expanded the role of the fire service into areas beyond fire suppression and prevention. new responsibilities include: hazardous materials response. water rescue, high angle/confined space rescue, and advanced life support.
Today, in addition to instructing numerous firefighting skills, the training program includes lessons on hazardous materials, terrorism response, urban, water and confined space rescue; rope rescue. rescue technicians, emergency vehicle driver, driver operator training, incident command training, and emergency medical technician basic training.
