Training remains one of the top priorities at District 1 and our commitment is evident where it counts; our budget. Allocations for training related expenses have increased every year for the last three years resulting in a more trained and certified work force. In that time, our responders have capitalized on offerings in subjects including Wildland Urban Interface Firefighting, Firefighter Proficiency, Fire Officer Development, Emergency Medical Services, Technical Rescue, the National Incident Management System, Hazardous Materials, Health & Safety, Civil Unrest, and many others.
In the coming months and years, District 1 will continue to pursue training goals established through deliberate succession planning. Achieving the highest degree of proficiency is the level of service our customers deserve.
