Training Division & Fire Academy

Training

The Training Division provides preparation on how firefighters should best respond to a wide variety of possible emergency incidents. The goal of the Training Division is to properly prepare every firefighter to respond with instinctive knowledge and expertise.

The training schedule ranges from daily drills, half-day training sessions with other stations, all-day specialty training and certification courses. In order to maintain the high standards of the Binghamton Fire Department, firefighters must learn and excel in many areas, including firefighting, search and rescue, emergency medicine, vehicle extrication, swift water rescue, trench collapse rescue, confined space rescue and hazardous materials.
