The mission of the Fire Rescue Services Training Center and the Training Team is to provide our emergency personnel with current, high-quality training and education that enables them to perform their duties safety and effectively.

Training includes:

  • Recruit academies for volunteer and career personnel
  • Courses and inservice training covering all aspects of firefighting
  • Emergency medical care and rescue
  • Hazardous materials and other special hazards
  • Personal development programs for company officers
  • Leadership skills enhancements

The majority of Fire Services training is conducted on a 47-acre site with facilities that cost more than $1.2 million to construct. The Training Center has classroom and administrative offices, a four-story high-rise drill tower, two-story burn building, LPG fire simulator, facilities for driver and pump training, SCBA (self contained breathing apparatus) training maze, automobile extrication practice area, fire apparatus and equipment and numerous other training props used for hazardous materials and technical rescue training. It is certified by the Florida State Fire Marshal, Bureau of Fire Standards and Training as a full-service training facility.

The  Training Center was created through a partnership formed in 1996 between Volusia County and Daytona State College. With the formation of the partnership, our personnel are able to obtain vocational or college credit for much of their fire service training. The partnership has helped both organizations to benefit from the sharing of multiple resources.

The Training Team provides a variety of training and educational programs for numerous governmental agencies and other organizations throughout Florida. The Training Center also serves as the sponsor/co-sponsor for many fire service-related activities and educational events such as the 1997 and 1998 Great Florida Fire Schools and other nationally-recognized seminars.
