Yearly Mandatory Training
All personnel must take the training below during the month(s) of October and November annually, so the entire department is on the same schedule. New employees who start during the year will get these during their initial orientation, but then must take them again during October/November to remain in compliance with state and federal regulations.
Here are the links to the updated BBP program. Review the PowerPoint presentation before attempting the exam. After completing the exam print a copy of your test score for your own records. If you are taking this off-duty and are requesting pay you must submit a copy of your test results to the office for processing. If you are a full-time or per-diem member please take this on-duty and the program will automatically record your successful completion.

If completing from home, please print off a copy of the attached CEH roster and Email it to Captain Contreras (firstname.lastname@example.org), you may also drop it off to the Captain's Office at Oakhill. Additionally, you will need to sign a blue training roster at any of the stations.
SCBA Refresher & Respiratory Protection Plan Review
To meet BLS Compliance, this year’s SCBA and Respiratory Protection Plan Review will consist of employees reviewing the department’s SCBA Refresher & Respiratory Protection Plan Review PowerPoint presentation with the successful completion of an online test. We have eliminated the SCBA confidence course as part of the mandatory training as it is not required by the standard. There is a practical evolution to don and doff the SCBA which will be done live during Fit Testing & Gear Check.
