Fire/EMS Training Division


Training is a vital component to fire department operations, and we pride ourselves on having a department that is comprised of highly trained, experienced employees looking to serve the community.

The department provides a full range of customer care to our residents and visitors. Our citizens enjoy exemplary fire and life safety services provided by our firefighters and paramedics 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Fire Training and EMS Training Divisions work closely together to provide intense, up-to-date fire and medical service training. Newly hired recruit firefighters at College Park Fire Rescue receive training and instruction by our training division prior to being assigned to a fire station.

Training for all firefighters is a constant, ongoing process in order to meet the requirements from OSHA, NFPA, Department of Health Services, and the needs of the community.
