Fall Chittenden County Basic Course EJFD Graduates
Sun. Nov 24th 2019

Yesterday the Essex Junction Fire Department had three new firefighters graduate from the Fall 2019 Chittenden County Basic Firefighting Course.

This course is a basic course that all new, non certified members must attend. The entire course is taught by volunteer instructors from departments across Chittenden County and is held generally one evening per week and every other Saturday for roughly three months. There is a spring and fall class each year. The spring class usually starts in March and the fall class usually starts in September. This fall class was hosted by Saint Michael's College Fire and Rescue.

This course is a state recognized basic firefighting course that teaches new members the basics of their gear, SCBA, hose lines, ladders, ventilation and various other firefighting tasks. Continuing training then follows at their respected departments and some departments encourage their members to continue on and take Firefighter 1 and 2.

Our three newest graduates from left to right are Sanya Kochelyaev, Nick Godaire and Katherine Hagestad. We are excited to have you in the EJFD family!

****If you are interested in taking the basic firefighting course, are interested in joining your local fire department and do not live in the Village of Essex Junction; the following departments also participate in the Basic Firefighting Course:
