Fire Training Division

The Division of Fire Service Training is responsible for assisting local governments in improving the levels of education and training standards for local firefighters and emergency responders.

The Division manages a program of training and certification for over 4,000 firefighters in Wyoming. The program involves developing standards for training, testing and certifying at all levels including; firefighting, fire prevention, public education, fire investigation, fire department management, and specialties including fire apparatus operator, airport firefighter, hazardous materials and rescue. Our students include all emergency first responders.

The Division of Fire Service Training also administers the Wyoming Fire Incident Reporting System for the Wyoming Fire Service. 

If you have questions regarding the Assistance to Firefighters Grant obtained from the Wyoming Fire Chiefs Association for volunteer recruitment and retention, please contact Ian Kraft at or call 307-856-6776.
