At Concord we believe in building our community. We offer a multi-agency fire academy and have invested the effort in becoming a self-delivery agency.
In the Concord Fire Academy, recruits undergo a rigorous training schedule in order to prepare them for their careers ahead as Firefighters in the state of North Carolina. The academy lasts approximately 20 weeks and covers all of the classes required for Firefighter certification in North Carolina. The academy will also cover all materials necessary recruits to acquire their EMT Basic certification.
Advanced training opportunities beyond the academy such as Driver/Operator, confined space, trench rescue, collapse, swift water, etc. are also offered. A number of classes are hosted by Concord Fire Department throughout the year, as well as the possibility of acquiring training time to travel to outside classes.
