Give back to your community!
Almost without exception, all of your training and equipment to become a firefighter is paid for by the agency. Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) training is provided free of charge.
The majority of fire departments in Oregon train to the Firefighter I standard. This level of training says you are certified to enter a burning structure without direct supervision. This does not mean that you enter the building alone, just that you do not need a supervisor (officer) with you.
To reach this level takes about 80 hours usually over the course of three to four months. This is known as your recruit training and includes CPR, Haz Mat Awareness and Operations, Blood and Air Born pathogens as well as all the sections of fire suppression that allow you to respond within the guidelines of the Occupation Safety Health Association (OSHA), Department of Health EMS and Trauma Section and the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) as they pertain to firefighting and the delivery of emergency medical services.
The hours you dedicate to this most noble profession are dependent on the number of calls your local agency responds to and their training structure. Many departments are involved in a number of civic and fundraising activities while others are not. Some agencies respond to thousands of calls per year while others only 50. Our agency allows those interested in specialized skills to respond to those type of calls, medical, water rescue, auto extrication or fire calls. Whatever your talents or interest, there is a place here at Seal Rock Fire for you. Contact us for more information – you'll be glad you did.
