Training

The Training Division’s emphasis continues to be on preparing all our personnel to function safely and efficiently at emergency incident scenes. Our goal is to deliver the highest possible level of service to our customers, while making sure that every one of our personnel returns safely to their family at the end of their shift.

The South Shore Fire Department conducts training continuously throughout the year. Training time is rotated among the various services provided by our organization: emergency medical services, fire suppression, vehicle extrication, and technical rescue topics such as confined space rescue and rope rescue. Additional training time is also spent on topics such as vehicle operation, officer development, and new building familiarization. The Training Division also oversees recruit training for all new personnel joining our organization.
