Is Education Included?

The Easy answer is “YES”. As a fresh volunteer, you will be expected to go to at the least 40 hours of exercise time before you is going to be voted on for membership. Next, any condition requirements for your level of firefighting reaction must certanly be satisfied and preserved annually to carry on with your firefighting career as a volunteer with Southside. Not merely do you can expect regular volunteer exercises, and we offer State recognized courses, Georgia Fire Academy courses, FEMA-GEMA-CEMA classes, and live-fire training burns regularly. All full-time career employees may go to these classes too.

For those seeking full time work with Southside, we choose NPQFF 1 & 2, NREMT-I, and GA protection Officer Certification in addition to experience in volunteerism. We do provide all these programs during season free of charge to our volunteers (with 1yr & good standing) also to our full-time personnel as required.

Our full-time firefighters would be the greatest trained in the region with a minimum of three (3) State or Nationally recognized certifications: NPQFF1, EMT, & GA safety Officer. Our volunteers may want to be at any one of those levels as well and many do. As a minimum, a volunteer must complete Module 1: Basic Firefighting with live fire burn to meet State skills as qualified interior structural firefighter. Volunteers might also elect to continue and be NPQFF 1 & 2 qualified and apply for State Certification as a firefighter. All full-time workers should be State Certified of their first 12 months of work.
