Huntersville Fire Department
 

Get ready for another FULL year of good, highly motivated, hands-on training. Just like last year – the training committee is working on and even expanding the same great training topics and training format for 2016.

The changes for 2016 include an adjusted format as well as additional Company Training each month. In 2016 training will be conducted two days during the month. We will continue to offer a day and a night option for each training day as we strive to give multiple opportunities to receive your required training.

In addition to the required training subjects, we will work to provide additional training opportunities and encourage company training throughout each month as well.
