The Training Division is dedicated to creating, implementing and delivering quality training programs that reflect the needs and ever changing responsibilities of the Fire Service.  That responsibility ranges from the initial emergency response training for Highlands County Fire Departments as well as on-going training and skill development of Firefighters and Fire Officers. With the numerous requirements placed upon the fire service today by the many regulatory agencies, (National Fire Protection Agency, Insurance Services Office, Florida Firefighter Occupational Safety & Health Act, American National Standards Institute) training is paramount for compliance.  The Training Division coordinates the needed training for compliance with established regulations for not only firefighting, but Hazardous Materials and Urban Search and Rescue training. Major emphasis is always safety first, and to insure a competent, efficient and effective emergency response protecting life, property, and the environment.
