Our department maintains our proficiency by training in areas related to company operations, officer development, driver operator, hazmat, wildland firefighting, safety & survival, fitness and wellness. Our neighboring partners who provide or receive mutual aid also train alongside our crews to create response standards and cohesiveness. Classes are taught in house by either computer- based or instructor-based training. Exercises in the field are done either at the station or on location with consent from business or property managers in the community.
Working with the community on location provides the opportunity for firefighters to pre-plan buildings and also provides community members the ability to witness how the fire department will respond in an emergency situation. The Seaside Fire Department’s mission is realized through our collaborative efforts and commitment to our training program each year.
