Cal-Fire is doing their part to maintain social distancing while training firefighters at their New-Hire Academy, and Lassen Community College is making it possible.

The college provided individual dorm rooms so that firefighters could have their own space while sleeping and studying each night for the next day’s tests.

They also provided food for the 15-firefighters and allowed the use of their classrooms so firefighters could stay six feet apart.

The firefighters start each day at 6:00 am with physical fitness training, followed by eight hours in the classroom and another five to six hours practicing their skills such as donning ‘self-contained breathing apparatus’, doing progressive hoselays, throwing 24-foot ladders and much more.

When the firefighters are fully trained, they will either go out to a fire station or be part of the Cal-Fire Lassen-Modoc Unit firefighter hand crew.
