The Career Fire Academy, a basic firefighter training program, is a collaborative effort among the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services, the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control and the career chiefs.
The academy is a basic firefighter training program designed to provide the firefighter with the essential knowledge and basic skills necessary to perform their job safely, effectively, efficiently, and as part of a firefighting team.
This 16 week intensive training program provides instruction in a classroom setting and practical skills training.
