This is the first of five phases necessary to obtain your Firefighting I and Firefighting 2 through the SFFMA.

Students rotate among the classroom sessions and field operations exercises according to the section to which they are assigned. Live fire structure training evolutions are not included in the Firefighting Phase I curriculum due to the NFPA 1403, Standard on Live Fire Training Evolutions requirement for prior Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) training.


There are no prerequisites for this course.
