We have training every other Tuesday for our volunteers, but at any time you can catch someone training on something. All Firefighter/EMT’s are responsible for completing 100 hours of recertification training a year by the Kentucky Fire Commission, we are also liable for a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education to maintain good standing for your Kentucky EMT certificate every two years, and for those of us that are Nationally Registered EMT’s we must acquire 72 hours continuing education every two years. There are always classes taking place to achieve those two requirements, but we also must complete hours of recertification for any specialized certificates that each firefighter may have earned. This training will vary from person to person, but the point is there is always some-type of class taking place for something.
