Training

Indiana volunteer firefighters are required to complete and pass a Mandatory firefighting curriculum in order to participate in firefighting. Lawrenceburg firefighters are encouraged to pursue higher certification levels. Each year the Training Division submits a yearly training schedule that encompasses the core competencies of firefighting along with special operations skills. Each firefighter who works in hazardous environments must participate in a minimum of 4 live burns per year, this meets the requirements set forth in the OSHA standards. Each firefighter must complete JPR’s (job performance requirements) each year. Training is also conducted on a daily basis around the station, this is to hone the firefighters skills and helps maintain certifications.
