    Default Fire School

    Anyone out there from the central oh area? Bucyrus, Marion, Delaware, Mansfield? I am working for a vollie dept in NW Marion Co and am looking for a fire school in hte area. They will be sending me through a 36 hour course bu the chief hasn't heard of any schools yet in the area. If anyone knows a thing, feel free to give me an email at: mcknis@yahoo.com.

    Thanks to all in advance
    Scott

    If you wouldn't mind the drive, BGSU Fall State Fire School is coming up in October. You will get your 36 hour done in 5 days and learn alot from good, experienced instructors. Also, the department that it is held at is top notch.

    Go to their website: www.fireschool.org for more info.

    I now return to my hiatus...

    Tri Rivers used to hold all the 36hr fire schools for marion, did they stop?, Delaware JVS has both 240 FFII and 36hr, The Ohio Fire Academy might have some info on a class in the area also.

    I believe that the State Fire School 36 hour is only about $375

    It's $295.00 and in the fall class you'll be done in 4 days instead of 5

    Thanks WTFD, I hadn't checked the website or the information before posting. This was just a ballpark estimate. Sorry.

    Dan,

    I believe Tri-Rivers doesn't have a FF school but they do give EMT and Paramedicine courses. Delaware JVS does have a fire school but it is not ready yet. I have been checking with my chief and other FFs, but so far no one has heard about any local schools.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Default Central Ohio Training

    Hey srvfddispatcher, I contacted Delaware JVS last week about the 36 hr course and they said they would add it if they got enough people interested. I put my name on the list so hopefully some others will get their names in so they can get it started. Their website is: http://www.delawarejvs.org/DACC%20Fi...emy/index.html.

    C-TEC in Licking County has a Fire School as well but they are full for the fall courses. Hopefully they will hold a class this coming February. Their website is: http://c-tec.edu/adults/majordetails.asp?programid=77. Interesting thing about their classes are that they have the 84 hr transitional course immediately following the 36 hr course so if you are intereted in continuing the course work to complete the 120 FF-I course they present a nice approach to do it.

    If anyone else knows of any classes starting late fall/early winter around Columbus, let me know I would definately like to know about them as well.
