All candidates must pass a background investigation, physical examination and agility course before being accepted into the Fire Training Academy.

About the Academy

During the 10 to 12 week Academy, you will participate in classroom instruction and hands-on. During the Academy, you will receive basic training in firefighting (i.e., hose handling, pump operations, emergency driving, extinguishers, firefighter safety, etc.)

The Academy is each Tuesday and Thursday (6 p.m. to 10 p.m.) and each Saturday (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).


Upon successful completion of the Academy and acceptance into the Department you will be assigned to your Station and provided the equipment necessary to perform your duties as a firefighter. You will respond to fires in your District and participate in monthly, ongoing training. You will have the opportunity to participate in additional training offered by outside agencies, such as Municipal Fire School at A&M and the Harris County Fire Fighters Association Field Days.
