Training Division

Our Training Program

Cheyenne Fire and Rescue's Training Division is responsible for planning, coordinating, and training fire department personnel throughout the year. Specialty training is provided for members of Hazardous Materials and Rescue Teams. This diversity in our training allows us to be prepared for all levels and types of emergencies. Each month every fire crew participates in a building familiarization in their first due response area and the buildings tactical plans are developed for reference when the fire company responds.

Training Complex

Our state-of-the-art training complex opened in August 2003. This complex is the only one of its kind in Wyoming. The complex consists of a multipurpose classroom / fire station, a six story tower and a two story burn building. This complex provides Cheyenne firefighters and the region a great opportunity to train and participate in scenarios and evolutions working together.


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.
