BASIC FIREFIGHTER CERTIFICATION AVAILABLE

You must attend all training days to obtain your state certification. We will split the cost of the class among the students equally. The state gave us a tentative 10,000 cost. We have a small donation to start us off. We believe the cost per person will be between 200 – 500 dollars.
