RECRUIT CLASS #13
Recruit Class #13 has just started in our first recruit academy of 2022. Puget Sound Fire currently has 17 recruits in this academy. Our recruits are scheduled to graduate from the academy in May, 2022.
SOUTH KING COUNTY FIRE TRAINING CONSORTIUM
The South King County Fire Training Consortium runs the 20-week Recruit Fire Academy. The SKCFTC is comprised of partner agencies that have come together for unified training that leads to consistency in operations. The Recruit Fire Academy teaches agencies’ newest hires all the required skills needed to serve their communities as firefighters. This includes using a self-contained breathing apparatus, fire hose operations, search and rescue, ladder use, technical rescue, vehicle extrication and much more. Recruits also spend five weeks of rigorous Emergency Medical Technician training before graduating the academy. Recruit firefighters graduate from the academy and report to their home agencies ready to ride on a fire engine as a probationary firefighter.
SHOW ME THE NUMBERS: DECEMBER UNIT RESPONSE NUMBERS
How many fires did we respond to last month? What types of calls do we respond to the most? How busy is the fire station in my community? Below is a table to help you understand how many responses your neighborhood fire station is dispatched to, along with the call types: Fire, EMS, Hazardous Materials, Service, and Other.
The information below is RESPONSES not INCIDENTS. This table shows the amount of times individual fire unit(s) from each station respond to an incident, not the amount of incidents our department responds to. For example, a basic aid call will typically have a single fire department unit respond. This counts as one incident and one responding unit. In comparison, a house fire will have multiple units respond to the single fire incident. At each incident, there can be multiple units from different stations. This would register as ONE incident, but with MULTIPLE responses.
