The Department participates with the Front Range Fire Consortium for firefighter recruit academies twice a year, one in the fall and the other in the spring. These academies consist of 600-800 hours of training for probationary firefighters over a 16 week period.
Upon graduation a new recruit receives Firefighter I and II certifications as well as Hazmat Operations and Rescue Awareness level certificates, (High and Low angle, Confined Space and Trench). This division is staffed by a division chief, a lieutenant, and operational shift trainers.
