Training & Safety Division
The Training Division of the Fire Department plans and schedules all training activities for the fire department for the calendar year. This training schedule differs from most career fire departments in that we must coordinate with our volunteers and offer a majority of out training curriculum at night and on weekends in order to accommodate their normal work schedule. The training division strives to offer every opportunity possible for the department's volunteer compliment to have complete access to all classes and certifications. This dedication to maintaining a strong working relationship with our volunteers and part time members has produced more North Carolina State Certified Firefighters and Rescue Technicians than ever experienced by our agency. We currently have a total of 32 firefighters on the department roster with 24 being certified at the level of NCOSFM Firefighter Level I/II. All full time staff are NCOSFM certified to the level of FF I/II, Driver/Operator Pumps, Driver/Operator Aerials, and Hazmat Awareness/Operations Plus.
