Firefighting, Emergency Medical Services, Rescue, and Hazardous Materials incidents require the best available training in order to prepare our firefighters for the wide variety of missions they are called to perform. Effective, efficient, and safe scene operations are the result of frequent, high-quality training. The Training Division's mission is to ensure that our firefighters are provided with the best training possible. The Training Division provides our firefighters with up-to-date knowledge, develops individual skills, and improves team abilities.
The Fire Training Bureau is responsible for the coordination, design, and delivery of Fire training for the entire department as well as conducting training and orientation to all newly hired recruits. Fire training is required by Florida State statute and consists of in-house classes that are conducted department-wide, as well as facility-based training at local fire training facilities.
