Lincoln Fire Protection District trains new firefighters

1 post in this topic

 In this photo, new Lincoln Fire Protection District firefighters prepare to enter the Charleston training tower for their final practical of the training academy. This is the third training academy for the district.

They have recently changed their department training over the last year, but their new member training has seen the most significant change. Now they bring on new members twice a year and they go through a mini fire academy, meeting one night a week for five weeks and one or two weekends.

They are given the basic tools and training to get them started, but this is only the beginning. Part of the training curriculum is a medical physical, mask fit testing, breathing apparatus, ladders, hand tools, hose line operations, search, water supply, and review of department operations. The last night of the academy, they have a live burn to test the recruits on their skill levels.

After the academy, with the very basic skills, they will train twice a month to sharpen the skills and also learn additional skills. Firefighting and rescue are complex tasks.

Lincoln Fire Protection District operates out of three stations, covering 115 square miles, with 68 firefighters. These men and women volunteer their time to make Lincoln Fire a professional department, to serve and protect our community.
