What we Do?

The Columbia Fire Department Training Division manages and oversees all aspects of training and education for department members.  This includes recruit-level training, continuing education, and career development.  Our mission is to prepare CFD members for “operational excellence” on emergency scenes through realistic and meaningful training based on the needs of Columbia Fire Department operations.  We deliver coursework on disciplines relating to all services provided by the CFD.
