The Clinton Fire Department is planning to host a 64-hour basic firefighting class. The dates, times, and cost for the training will be based on the number of people who take part.
This course is designed to provide basic fire ground skills necessary to operate and perform on the fire ground. The program is geared to volunteer firefighters and others who are unable to attend longer duration programs.
The course covers sections of NFPA 1403: Live Fire Training Evolutions, meeting the basic skill level for the student to participate in â€œliveâ€ fire fighting training activities. This course is a prerequisite for students who wish to attend the 16-hour F111 – Firefighter I Live Burn course at the Academy. The students will receive a certificate for basic firefighting upon successful completion of written and practical testing. [Read more…]
