Special Teams

A majority of our firefighters are trained in a wide variety of specialties. This is made possible by members being able to take several classes in all sorts of rescue. Just a few include Swift Water, Emergency Boat Operator, Technical Rescue Team, Hazardous Materials, Rope Rescue, High Angle Rescue, Trench Rescue, Ice Rescue, and the list continues. It is important that all members be highly trained. This way no matter the emergency, you are receiving nothing but the best in your time of need. Unfortunately, given the size of this department, it becomes costly to train in multi specialties. OFPD hosts several classes and does a majority of training in house to help keep costs down. This being said, this referendum will help keep us on our current path of progress!
