The fire training section, within the Support Services Division, is responsible for management of in-service education programs for our Fire Rescue Technicians. Management of the fire training section is provided by the Fire Training Captain. Fire training operations are conducted regularly and adhere to state and federal guidelines set forth by organizations such as the National Fire Academy (NFA) and the Virginia Department of Fire Programs (VDFP). Fire training is conducted in multiple environments such as in-station, at the Fire and EMS Training Center and at the Hampton Roads Regional Burn Building. All fire training staff members are required to be certified instructors and can conduct necessary training classes within and outside of the department. The fire training section also provides management and instructor support to the Tidewater Regional Fire Academy (TRFA) and enjoys active membership in the Hampton Roads Training Officers Association.
