Newly hired firefighters will typically participate in an intensive 2-week pre-academy orientation program. This program is designed to give the probationary firefighter an orientation tour of all facilities, apparatus and city landmarks.
Gear issue, uniforms and various PPE assignments will be made with initial orientation training on SCBA, hose and ladders. We aim to prepare our recruit firefighters with a basic knowledge of what will be expected of them when they attend their training program.
This is a typical schedule of topic coverage during the 2-week pre-academy training period.
