Firefighter Recruit Training

Our recruit training program is very challenging and has been designed for candidates who have completed our Firefighter Selection Process.

Our training program provides the following knowledge and skills:

  • Fire Suppression
  • Medical First Response
  • Search and Rescue
  • Hazardous Materials
  • Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
  • Ladders
  • Hose
  • Vehicle Extrication
  • Fire dynamics
  • Ventilation
  • Fire ground survival
  • Ropes and knots
  • Structural firefighting
  • Building fire safety systems
  • Physical fitness
  • And much more


After Graduation

Graduates of recruit training will work in three different fire stations during their probationary year. While in the stations they will gain valuable experience as a member of a crew. They will also undergo monthly performance evaluations. Graduates must be able to pass all written exams and regular skill assessments to become a permanent employee.
