The Salinas Fire Department began its new Fire Academy on March 11th with 8 recruits. The academy will last 18 weeks with a graduation date of July 12, 2019. The 18 weeks consist of a customary in house academy put on by Salinas firefighters.  The recruits will be put the test through physical training, hands on learning, and daily quizzes of in class presentations. The output of this academy will further meet the needs of the department.

Every Saturday throughout the month of February, Salinas Firefighters conducted training at the Rabo Bank in downtown Salinas. If you saw them here, that is what they were doing! Crews went through a series of scenarios and responded accordingly to each incident type. The training was significant, and each on duty firefighter participated.
