  Breaking News

On Saturday Feb 3rd, three firefighter trainees successfully completed their final test out to become full fledged OCFD6 firefighters. Samantha Todd, James “Jimmy” Cahill, Ron Overbeck completed 8 hours of classroom and 16 hours hands on training (this doesn’t count the hours of homework/study time) in order to earn the rank of firefighter.

This training is based off the same curriculum and uses the same book that the Washington State Fire Training Academy uses. It’s taught by a certified fire instructor and incorporates OCFD6 operational policies and guidelines as well.

The trainees trained on topics like: the incident command system (ICS), how to don/doff/care for their personal protective equipment, don a self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in under 60 seconds, ladder operations, and how to properly deploy, operate, and reload various types of hose lines.

Completion of this training doesn’t mean they are capable of performing every operation on the fire ground. It simply gives them a framework of necessary skills in which to build upon as they continue their volunteer career with OCFD6
