An organized crew of trained firefighters is the result of hours of classroom training and hands-on drills.
Training and firefighter safety are priorities, and are required by OSHA, EPA, and numerous
other State and Federal agencies. We also adhere to the standards of the
National Fire Protection Administration. In their first year, new members must reach
the Level One Certification through Vermont Fire Training. Many have reached Level Two, most
are also registered EMT’s, and the Officer Corp is working to comply with new
National Standards for Incident Management.
We respond to a variety of incident types and have very specialized tools and equipment. Learning how to use a
new tool is only the beginning. We try to create training exercises that use many different tools and
skills. Some of our equipment is listed below.
