After we hire new firefighter recruits, they go through our training academy.
Once we hire new recruits, they attend the Fire Academy at our Training Center. We limit our classes to 20 students so we can give the individual attention needed. New firefighters learn hands-on skills to save lives and stay safe.
At the end of the academy, recruits take the Michigan Firefighters Training Council Exam at the end of training. When they complete the program successfully, they receive certificates for:
- MFFTC/OFFT Fire Fighter I & II
- Haz-Mat Awareness
- Haz-Mat Operations
- Licensed State of Michigan Medical First Responder
