Check out our photo gallery of just some of the training that goes on with the Oracle Fire Dept. Click HERE for Firefighter photos and click HERE for CERT training photos.

The Oracle Fire Department has been hosting Arizona Fire I & II, EMS First Responder, 
EMT-B, and Healthcare Provider CPR classes through Central Arizona College since 2002. Basic Wildland Firefighter and other wildland classes have been held here. CPR classes for the public and EMT First Responder class are also scheduled at OFD.

OFD personnel are encouraged to continue training throughout their career. Selected firefighters are allowed to attend the Wildfire Academy each year in Prescott, Arizona and the Arizona State Fire School in Mesa, Arizona.
Several OFD firefighters have completed advanced training, such as Swift Water Rescue and other technical rescue classes.

Three in-house DRILLS are provided each month. Drill schedules are posted in the Captains Office, listed on the "shift schedule" and also announced each month at our public meeting. Firefighters wishing to remain on the shift schedule are required to attend at least one drill per month.
