Training Officer: Any Lanesborough Fire Captain

Station: 413-443-2321

Welcome to the Lanesborough Volunteer Fire Department’s Training Page. Our department maintains an aggressive training program, holding training every Wednesday night at 7:00pm. Training for volunteer firefighters in Massachusetts has become very stringent and will only get harder in the future. We currently have a fully networked computer-based training system to train our members in Firefighter I/II and many other Advanced Rescue programs. This has allowed many of our members to complete the training on their own time, providing much more flexibility with today’s busy lifestyles. Our training is open to any firefighter in the area, so if you see any training of interest and would like to attend, please email the Training Officer or call the station on Wednesday nights.

For all those die-hard Firefighters out there looking to keep fresh on their knowledge and skills, here are the many sites we recommend browsing for the most up-to-date technology and techniques. Many of these sites have online forums, one of the greatest online avenues to share firefighting experiences and techniques.
