IMPORTANT NOTES:
 
APPLYING FOR TRAINING COURSES:

Please download the current version of the Standard Training Course Application (see below) and destroy all old copies. Course hosts have one week after the schedule is published to submit their course applications after which time, applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.

A completed and signed should accompany all applications for hands-on courses.

ROSTERS:

Individual course registration confirmations are no longer faxed out to students. Rosters are posted as student registrations are compiled for the particular class, and only after the minimum number of registrations have been received. Rosters are updated periodically as registrations are received, as a course is full, or as the registration deadline has passed. Rosters for each course are posted to: FIREFIGHTER 1:

Those attending Firefighter 1 courses should note the dates of the mandatory orientation for each course which must be attended by the student, accompanied by a chief or training officer.

The Delmar Firefighter’s Handbook on Essentials of Firefighting and Emergency Response-NY Edition and Supplement are required at the first class and are available through the Fire Safety Office at a cost of $75 each.

PLEASE NOTE: NYS OFPC is tranistioning to the Delmar Firefighter’s Handbook on Essentials of Firefighting and Emergency Response – “Third Edition” as soon as our local supply of the original edition is depleted. Those books will be available through the Fire Safety Office at a cost of $95 each.

Students confirmed as attending Firefighter 1 courses should download, review, and share the Student Packet with their officers prior to attending orientation. http://www.erie.gov/depts/community/fsd_resources/Firefighter%201%20Student%20Packet.pdf

Be sure to include your e-mail address and cell or other phone number on your application to ensure effective communications as the roster is posted and important course information must be distributed.
