The Training Division educates and trains our newest recruits, as well as seasoned veterans, on emergency response.

This division is one of the most diverse in the state of Tennessee. All instructors are crossed-trained in various disciplines. Each assumes a leadership role in coordinating critical aspects of training. This includes recruit fire training, extrication training, hazardous materials training, driver training, officer training, emergency medical training, US&R, monthly station schools, state required in-service training and certification updates.

The staff has also been instrumental in developing training for agencies outside the department. The division has partnered with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Hamilton County LEPC, Boy Scouts of America, Hamilton County Coalition, M. L. King Weed and Seed program, and local utility companies in the recent past to provide medical, fire and safety training. The division recognizes the importance of community partnerships and continuously explores opportunities to address the safety needs of the city.

The Training Division is dedicated to enhancing the professionalism of the department by preparing our members to confront the challenges of today's fire service.
