The Training Division of the Bristol Kendall Fire Protection District is responsible for training personnel from the newest member to the most senior member.
Training topics include fire suppression, EMS, vehicle extrication, apparatus driving, and water rescue. Programs have been built to concentrate on the core competency skills which can be used by all members. Company drills are then conducted during the week to in scenarios that challenge personnel to become more proficient with their skills. These scenarios are conducted at station 1 in shipping containers that were constructed to be used as a training facility.
Over the years, training has also been conducted in buildings slated for demolition which give personnel more realistic training conditions.
