New Training Center

Training Center Buildings   New Drill Tower

The Richardson Fire Training Center was opened in 2013. It includes the city Emergency Operations Center and a backup Dispatch Center.  Training is an integral part of building an effective emergency operations team. Over the last several years the RFD has increased expectations and job performance standards and has ensured that state and federal mandated training programs are conducted. In addition to these improvements, the department is increasing the level of training support to accomplish several additional objectives including:

  • Certifying all firefighters at the paramedic level
  • Certifying all driver/engineers and firefighters as driver/operators
  • Expanding the firefighter wellness program and improving fitness levels
  • Creating a professional development program
  • Improving disaster preparedness
  • Increasing understanding of and use of technology
