Training & Safety Division

The Sun City Fire and Medical Department Training Division is committed to staying on top of the latest firefighting and emergency response techniques and information so that our growing department remains ahead of the curve! This division is lead by a Battalion Chief of Training and a Training Battalion Safety Officer.

The Training Division mitigates the following training:

  • Recruit Firefighter training
  • Monthly training
  • EMS training
  • Drivers training
  • HazMat training
  • Career development
  • Required OSHA training
  • Wildland Training
  • The Westside Training Consortium
  • Regional Operational Consistency Committee – Training

Training is typically conducted in and around the area and at the Glendale Regional Public Safety Training Center (GRPSTC). The Training Division has embraced technology, with the goal of creating an online training library. This will allow certain training sessions to be available online so Sun City firefighters can participate without leaving the fire stations, remaining close by in the event of an emergency call.
