Training is not everything.
It is the ONLY Thing!
The Training Division is tasked with the cross training of all new recruits. Recruit training is rigorous and demanding. This basic training includes both classroom and practical hands-on training that mimics the street as close as possible in an academy setting. The training division develops curriculum that assures the highest quality training and assures a smooth transition from the classroom to field duty assignments.
Through our work and a joint effort with the Southside Regional Fire Academy we train newly hired recruits, as well as provide ongoing Fire/EMS training to all members of our department.
The Training Director lead by Captain Jacob Newton is held at the Public Safety Operations Center, 2130 S. Military Highway. For more information, call 757-382-1721.
