    Default Moving to Colorado

    I am soon going to be graduating both the Fire Science program that I am in, and college with 2 degrees and I am looking to move out to Colorado from Wisconsin after graduating. I will have a bachleors in Communications, and a Associate in Fire Science. I will be cerifitied in FF1, NIMS, EMT-B, Fire Inspector, HAZMAT, C-PAT, and Driver/Operator. All certifications will be earned in Wisconsin. My questions are the following. First will these certifications have any qualifications in Colorado. Would I have to redo this certifications to be qualified in Colorado. How do I go about appplying to the Denver fire dept, or an area dept close by such as Boulder. Any knowledge would be of great help. Thanks

    If your certs have an IFSAC seal you shouldn't have any problems; you'll need to contact the Division of Fire Safety at 720-852-6735 and speak to them about reciprocity. They'll charge you a fee for each cert you want.

    Default Additional departments to look at


    Parker Fire Protection District is a great department that is growing fast. South Metro Fire Rescue is another. Many departments in Colorado are growing the Colorado Division of Fire Safety has a complete list of departments. It really depends on what you are looking for in a department.

    Good luck with your move.
