Utah Fire and Rescue Academy


Effective immediately the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy will take the following actions to assist in the prevention and spread of the COVID‐19 virus.

All current UFRA courses and certification testing from now until May 1, 2020 will be postponed. These courses and tests may be rescheduled after May 1st or into the next fiscal year.

Our office is closed to the public, and UFRA employees are working remotely.  You may contact individual employees by email.  Training program managers will contact departments that have already scheduled training.  Certification Specialists will be contacting departments about rescheduling testing. For more information, see About Us.

As always, we are available by phone should you have any questions or concerns regarding these actions. Please be assured that the health of you and your families, as well as the Utah fire service are the driving factors behind these decisions.
