Become A Hero
with Middletown FD
Volunteer firefighting is a very rewarding and valuable way to serve your community. It takes dedication and many hours of training to become a firefighter. If you're willing to put in the time and effort, there is a department ready for you to serve.
Firefighting classes are structured sequentially. For this reason, prerequisites have been established for many classes so that each student will have the necessary background to gain the most from each lesson. Since many classes build upon the knowledge gained in the prerequisite classes, an unprepared student will not only fail to understand some of the material, they will also slow the progress of the entire class. Please note that prerequisites are identified in the class description section for each Academy class. All students must meet all of the prerequisite training prior to the class start date.
Training Academy Registration forms must be submitted two weeks prior to the start of all classes. Please see that all information on the application form is complete, legible, and signed appropriately. Incomplete registration forms may be rejected.
