General Information

The Utah Fire & Rescue Academy provides a wide variety of training opportunities to current Utah firefighters in several formats.  (If you are looking for training on becoming a firefighter, visit this web page for the program at Utah Valley University.) Fire departments throughout Utah can request Academy deliveries of many basic training and live-fire courses at their locations or in their region. Most of these classes are completely subsidized by the state and are therefore free to members of UTAH fire departments. Curriculum for Firefighter I & II, Haz Mat, Apparatus Driver Operator and other courses are available for loan to departments wishing to conduct their own training through our Supported Delivery programs.

Each year in January, UFRA conducts a fire training school in St. George, Utah. Winter Fire School (WFS) is considered to be one of the largest of its type in the nation. WFS has grown to more than 95 classes and over 800 students, instructors, and support staff. WFS also boasts a large vendor show which includes demonstrations with state of the art firefighting, rescue, and emergency medical response equipment.

In addition, UFRA offers smaller "regional fire schools" throughout the year in various parts of the state. These schools are commonly held on a Friday-Saturday schedule and include many hands-on classes.
