The Training Division works under the supervision of Lieutenant/Training Officer Steve Schaer. Lieutenant Schaer coordinates and schedules the training for the entire department. Daily trainings are conducted to keep skills sharp and fine-tuned while quarterly live burn training, monthly EMS and weekly skill drills are also incorporated.

The fire department has established and maintained a training & education program with the goal of preventing occupational deaths, injuries, and illnesses per NFPA 1500. All training is compliant with the Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshal, Illinois Department of Labor, ISO, and OSHA. During emergency incidents and training evolutions, the safety of our personnel is the number one priority.
