Klamath County Fire District No. 1 personnel are assigned one training subject per day, for an average of one hour. These subjects include Fire, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Apparatus Operations, Safety, Administrative, and HazMat.
In 2013, Fire District No. 1 held three new-hire academies, providing training to nine new Firefighters. This kept every shift busy working through the various steps of the Field Training and Evaluation Program (F-TEP). This training was done in concert, and sometimes in addition to, the regular daily shift training that occurred.
Fire District No. 1 also hosted a 40-hour National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Fire Officer I class though the local training association. This course focuses on the duties of the first line supervisor, or company officer. Those that successfully complete the class, and complete the associated task book, can be certified as an NFPA Fire Officer I. There were 10 original registrants that dropped to seven final students, with several students from last year's class attending make-up classes.
