Continuing education, physical fitness training, firefighter safety and EMT/Paramedic certification is provided to the Department's employees by the Training Division. Below are other areas the Training Division provides.
Boise Fire Recruit Academy Program
The academy was created to teach new firefighters valuable skills and techniques during the five month of intensive training. Skills cover classroom training, physical training, and skill application.
Live Burn Training
We are temporarily suspending our acquired structure program and will not be pursuing donations for the foreseeable future. We will continue to accept donated vehicles for extrication training. If you wish to donate an old vehicle to the Training Division please contact Captain Marcus Rainey at (208) 570-6742. The owner will need to present the vehicle title.
Vehicle Extrication Training
First responders are often called to the scene of vehicle fires and accidents that involving trapped victims. Firefighters are trained on vehicle extrication with donated cars. To donate an old vehicle to the Training Division, please contact Captain Marcus Rainey at (208) 570-6742. The owner will need to present the vehicle title.
This type of training takes place at our fire training center that was completed in spring 2018. Previous to the center being built, Boise Fire partnered with local businesses to provide scenario training opportunities for firefighters.
