The members of the Five Mile Point Fire Company pride ourselves on the quality of training we provide. We aggressively train each week because firefighting techniques and equipment are
constantly changing. To keep up with the ever changing world we live in, our safety depends on learning the new hazards and new techniques as we provide the most highly trained firefighters to protect our community. On any given night, you will find and average of 25 fire fighters attending our training and that is almost unheard of in this day and age. In 2011 the 39 members of the Five Mile Point Fire Company totaled 3474 hours of training (that's an average of almost 90 hours per firefighter) and it is due to the time and effort our Training Staff put in to provide quality trainings on a weekly basis.Firefighters from other departments often train with us due to the fact that weprovide day time trainings that are more convenient to their work schedule.
The Five Mile Point Fire Company trains each week on Monday mornings from 9-11 and every Wednesday night from 7-9. Our members also take advantage of offsite training provided by neighboring departments, NYS fire outreach classes along with classes at the New York State Fire Academy in Montour Falls.
Please stop down on any training night, meet our members and see if firefighting is something you might be interested in. The Five Mile point Fire Company is always looking for new members to
serve the community.
