Fire Training Division

The training division is a critical element of the fire department. This division is responsible for the training, monitoring and certification of fire personnel. It is through proper training techniques that we strive to reduce injuries to our personnel and provide quality of service to our citizens.

Types of Training

High-rise fires are tough fires that place extreme physical demands on fire personnel. The department conducts multi-agency drills with local departments as these types of fires require additional personnel. Fire fighters use stair wells when fighting fires in high-rise buildings. Fire equipment is carried up to the fire floor to extinguish the fire.

Multi-Agency personnel train together as a team in Low Angle Rescue techniques. Local agencies have learned the value in working together to provide specialized rescue.

Monterey Fire Department personnel train with neighboring fire departments. It is important to review equipment and meet personnel from neighboring departments because of limited resources we need to rely on each other to get the job done.

Training Partnerships and Schedule
The Monterey Fire Department is a member of the Monterey County Fire Training Officers Association and the Monterey County Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Team. It is important to review equipment and meet personnel for neighboring departments because of limited resources we need to rely on each other to get the job done. There are also instances where many agencies will need to work together. We want to provide prompt and professional services in the event of major fire, medical emergency, rescue, environmental disaster or any other event which threatens the public welfare, county wide.
