Training Bureau

The CAL FIRE Shasta-Trinity Unit / Shasta County Fire Department Training Bureau is responsible for the coordination, delivery and documentation of training for all career and volunteer personnel in the Shasta County Fire Department and CAL FIRE Shasta-Trinity Unit. We ensure that all federal, state, local and departmental training mandates, laws and regulations are followed as they pertain to training.  Our goal is to assure quality service to the public by developing the skills and abilities of all Shasta County Fire Department's and CAL FIRE Shasta-Trinity Unit’s career and volunteer personnel.  This is accomplished through training that is efficient, economical, and consistent with the needs of the public, the County of Shasta, the Fire Department and its members.

The Training Bureau delivers and coordinates various formal and informal training courses to volunteer and career firefighters throughout the year.  On average, the Training Bureau supplies over 3000 instructor hours and the members of Shasta County Fire Department participate in over 10,000 hours of training each year.
