Fire Fighter 1 is the first level of a progressive program
which includes Fire Fighter 1, 2, and 3. This level introduces
the novice firefighter to the basics of nationally recognized
fire fighting techniques.
Methods of instruction will include classroom theory as well
as skill oriented "hands on" drill sessions. Student
performance will be evaluated throughout the course including
mid term and final exams, both written and practical. The New
Jersey Division of Fire Safety's standardized Fire Fighter 1
test is given as part of the final exam. Fire Fighter 1 meets
the performance objectives of the N.F.P.A. standard 1001 and
N.J.A.C. 5:73 4.3 standard which will allow a firefighter to
perform firefighting under direct supervision.
All students will receive ICS Orientation, Bloodborne Pathogens,
Right to Know and Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operational
Levels of training as required by N.J.A.C. 5:75-6.1.
Full Personal Protective Equipment is required for all sessions.
