  Breaking News

Recently, nine OCFD6 volunteers began the Firefighter Trainee course. Upon completion, the graduates will be recognized as full fledged District 6 Firefighters. They will have concluded approximately 80 hours of hands-on skills and knowledge based testing in addition to another 60 plus hours of self-study.

Trainees learn skills such as how to use power saws for ventilation, handle ground ladders, and how to deploy and safely maneuver hose lines.

Barring any circumstances beyond the District's control (wildfires or other emergencies) the final test out is scheduled for the end of November.

The curriculum OCFD6 uses to train its personnel is the current nationally recognized International Fire Service Training Association's (IFSTA) Essentials of Fire Fighting and Fire Department Operations 6th Edition.
