Training / safety

The Training Division is responsible for the initial and ongoing training for the Poway Fire Department. This is accomplished through an annual training plan that outlines the goals and objectives for each year. This ensures adequate training and skill proficiency in all aspects of the duties of a firefighter. Each division participates in a minimum of 20 hours of training per month in addition to their other duties and responsibilities. The Training Division has also developed a career development program to assist firefighters in further enhancing their careers in the fire service.
