The West Fargo Fire Department's Training Division goals are:
The West Fargo Fire Department adheres to the ISO guidelines, which mandate that firefighters must accumulate a minimum number of training hours annually.
To meet this requirement, shift personnel have the flexibility to complete the required training while on duty. For part-time staff, the options include attending individual training sessions or fulfilling their training hours while covering shifts.
In a new approach, part-time personnel have the opportunity to participate in a weekend-long training once each quarter. During this designated weekend, both part-time and full-time employees engage in training, facilitating larger sessions that involve the entire department. This streamlined approach ensures efficient and comprehensive training for all personnel.
