Warren County Volunteer Fire Academy Graduates

On Wednesday, January 22, 2020 the Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services graduated 14 volunteers from its 2019 Volunteer Fire Academy.

This five month training program certified these students in CPR, First Aid, Hazardous Materials Operations, Firefighter Level I and Level II and various other ancillary certifications. To achieve these certifications, students invested over 320 hours of classroom and hands-on learning and many more hours at home or at their respective volunteer fire station. These students read multiple text books that when combined, consist of over 2000 pages of course materials. They completed 22 written and practical benchmark quizzes, four practical skills assessments, three written state exams, three state practical skills exams, and four live fire training exercises.This five month training program certified these students in CPR, First Aid, Hazardous Materials Operations, Firefighter Level I and Level II and various other ancillary certifications.
