Firefighter/EMT Training

Firefighter/EMT Training

Firefighter/EMTs training is ongoing. Our firefighters receive training in fire suppression techniques including:

  • emergency medicine on how to care for medical/trauma patients

The fire department utilizes the Boulder Regional Fire Training Center, located on approximately 10 acres east of the Boulder Reservoir, for much of its training activities. Opened in 2010, under a cooperative agreement between the city and Boulder County, the center is operated today under an intergovernmental agreement between the city and the county.
