Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District and for visiting the Training Section page!
The Training Section falls under the Life Safety Division and is led by the District’s Training Captain. The Training Section is responsible for coordinating and managing all aspects of the District’s training and certification program.

The Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District has a Training Center located at 7500 WCR 20 at the Town of Firestone Public Works Property.
