Vashon Island Fire and Rescue will be opening their upcoming Fire Academy for "Self Pay". This will allow those interested in paying to obtain a WA State Firefighter 1 certification to self-sponsor without an agency. Class size is limited to 16, (11 seats remaining) guaranteeing lots of hands-on experience to build skills and leave recruits confident they will be able to successfully complete the WA FF1 Exam. Classes will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as all day Saturdays. Classes are taught by experienced VIFR Firefighters and will be held largely at VIFR's Training Center in downtown Vashon. The course includes HAZMAT training and Search and Rescue Training at the WA State Academy in North Bend. Full details and costs can be found on the "Fire Academy" page of this website.
