Regional Recruit Academy Begins
Today the Southern Marin Fire District and Marin County Fire Department began their first week of a regional firefighter recruit academy. The Recruit Academy is ten weeks in duration and provides a basic foundation for new firefighters. Regional Fire Academies provide an economical method to train firefighters from many agencies, at one time, thereby eliminating duplication as well as ensuring that they are all taught the same processes and procedures. The Academy is a carefully orchestrated process that prescribes every moment of activity while the student is learning.
