EMT 2013 Schedule
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.
