For more than 62 years, the Alabama Fire College has delivered fire fighter training.  As service demands on fire departments have expanded, the Fire College has developed EMS, hazardous materials, rescue technician, and other programs to meet those changing needs.  The Fire College’s capacity to adapt to these changes is directly attributable to the dedication and commitment of the full and part-time staff and to the guidance and direction of the Fire College’s governing body, the Alabama Firefighters Personnel Standards and Education Commission.  Because local, State, and Federal fire fighters entrust us with their training, we are obligated to ensure they receive the most comprehensive educational experience possible and the training also complies with national standards.

Alabama Fire College employees are committed to ensuring our facilities and services are impeccable.   In order to positively impact our consumers, we will continue to gauge our performance against five core strategies:

  • To provide excellent education and training
  • To provide excellent customer service
  • To support the Alabama fire service
  • To promote higher education
  • To ensure stewardship of public resources

We understand that you have choices regarding where you receive your fire service training and very much appreciate your consideration of the Alabama Fire College to meet those needs.  If we may be of service to you or your organization, please do not hesitate to contact us.
