Fire Training Academy
In 1997, the Union County Division of Emergency Services formed a partnership with the Union County Fire Chiefs’ Association in an effort to further enrich the firefighters’ education. The advantage of this affiliation is the bringing together of combined resources to enhance training for both career and volunteer firefighters.
The Academy primarily operates at the Linden facility and has become a professional training ground. It also operates at other locations and provides Outreach programs to municipal fire departments to help meet their training needs. The staff consists of approximately 25 highly competent instructors.
The program at the Academy has a high standard for the Firefighters of Union County, which translates into pride and professionalism in serving the people of Union County.
