One Mission

Squad School

What: In the near future, Squad School will be a requirement in order for all personnel (career, part-time, and volunteer) to ride on either of the heavy squad units in the county. Given the specialty of these two apparatus, it is important that personnel riding on them be well rounded in their training. During Squad School we will teach some new extrication and Vent Enter Search (VES) techniques.

When: To Be Announced (TBA)

Where: Station 8

Pre-Requisites: Must be 18 years of age and have firefighter II certification

Cost: None

Note: Participants must bring turnout gear and eye protection. Class size is limited to 20 personnel per day. You only need attend one of the two days being offered; then one day on VES (to be held on a later date – TBA) to complete the school.

For further information call the Fire Administration Office at 804-966-9618.
