Our Work is Never Done

When we’re not fighting fires or educating the public on fire prevention, we’re training to better serve our communities. As such, educational and training opportunities are a critical component of our work. We conduct training in fire suppression, emergency medical care, hazardous materials response, technical rescue, fire prevention, and fire code enforcement. Likewise, we celebrate staff accomplishments, awards and promotions as outcomes of successful training.
