This Division manages the majority of the training for the Fire District.
The training needs vary greatly and include:
Emergency Medical training
Live Fire training
Simulator and Career development training
Driver operator and Acting officer testing
Scheduling yearly training requirements and mandates compliance
Rescue Site special training
Trench and Confined space training
Menlo Park Fire on occasion will have the public donate house or building for use in training. The donated house or building gives the district an extraordinary training opportunities. We drill on construction, fire search and rescue, forcible entry, ventilation techniques, and much more. Every house or building is different and the more we expose our personnel to them, the better we are. Training for the fire service is enver ending. These donated homes or building is one of the best ways to expose and educated our personnel.
