Comprehensive annual training is delivered to all fire fighters in the following areas:
- Fire Fighting
- Vehicle Extrication
- Hazardous Material
- Technical Rescue

Training is designed to reinforce the concepts of both skills and public service in all of the training programs that are delivered. This is accomplished through many different forms of teaching methods including traditional classroom lectures, videos, and hands-on training classes.
New firefighters receive approximately 400 hours of training prior to being assigned to the Operations Division. A training calendar is developed annually to ensure firefighters receive a minimum of 100 hours of continuing education
