Training Division

Chief T. J. Dineen heads the Jackson Fire Department Training Division. Chief Dineen supervises three highly qualified Instructors who must orchestrate a comprehensive multi-faceted training program. Firefighting is a dangerous occupation and personnel must be continually trained in order to perform the multitude of tasks required and do it in the safest possible way. Fire instructional areas include:

  • Recruit training – Consists of a 12-week school that all recruit firefighters must pass in order to become full-fledged probationary firefighters.
  • 40 hour State Fire Commission training. (Required by ISO).
  • Hazmat initial and recertification training. (State TEMA certified)
  • Technical rescue training. (Vehicle extrication, high angle rope, and confined entry space rescue. (required by OSHA for general industry)
  • Emergency vehicle operator licensure.
  • Emergency medical first responder state licensure.
  • Fire suppression / fire tactics
  • Fire officer / incident command.
  • Homeland Security / WMD
  • Industrial / volunteer fire brigade.
  • State Fire Commission Firefighter level I & Level II certification (required for all probationary firefighters.)

The Fire Department is proud of its fire-training complex. The training center located at 720 S. Highland has recently been renovated and is the best training facility between Memphis and Nashville. The Tennessee State Fire School has designated the training center as a regional training center for the state. The training center provides the best possible training for city firefighters with many outdoor and indoor training props and classroom / conference room facilities. The only significant revenue generated by the Fire Department comes from providing fire brigade training for local industry and surrounding volunteer departments. We have become well known in the West Tennessee area for the excellent training we provide. We hope to continue improvements to the complex to expand services even more.
