Fire Brigade

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 Westchester County 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 17 week intensive training program provides instruction in a classroom setting and practical skills training.  This training prepares the firefighter to save the life of a fire victim, a fellow firefighter or themselves. Upon completion of the course, the trainee is able to efficiently mitigate any emergency.

There are 22 recruits in the current class representing nine municipalities.
