Twelve firefighters graduated from the Marin County Regional Fire Academy on June 17, 2016. The 10-week Marin County Regional Fire Academy was a fast-paced, intense and highly disciplined program based on Marin County Fire Agencies’ Standard Operating Guidelines, and the California State Fire Marshal Firefighter I curriculum. The Recruit received the technical and manipulative instruction which is needed to operate at a Firefighter I level. The training was designed to develop the Recruit's ability to function under stress and perform as an effective team member of a fire company. The firefighters also participated in daily physical fitness exercises to develop the necessary and requisite strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. Graduates will move into positions with Kentfield Fire District, Marin County Fire Department, Mill Valley Fire Department, Southern Marin Fire District and Tiburon Fire District.
The Kentfield Fire District welcomes Provisional Firefighter Bryan Bridges, Class of 2016.
