Firefighter I Graduation
By Lieutenant Kieran Outhouse
January 25, 2019

Probationary Firefighter James Coyle on graduating and successfully completing the NYS OFPC Firefighter I & Firefighter Survival courses. These courses combined consist of 140 hours of training in exterior & interior firefighting and hazardous materials. James joined the department last year and plans on taking his active test, eventually leading to department certification as an Interior Firefighter.

He will be studying and eventually completing his active test along with Firefighters Grant, Outhouse and Martin.

Our active test consists of an exam of department equipment, order of response, and department policies and procedures. The firefighters must take their exam with the Captain, and if recommended, they take their final exam with the Chief of Department.
