State Firemen’s and Fire Marshal’s Curriculum.
EMS training is based on National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT), Texas Department of State Health Services protocols, and American Heart Association Standards.

The training provided to a modern day volunteer firefighter is as diverse as the types of calls the Fire Department responds to. One moment the volunteer firefighters could be fighting a structure fire and the next, they could be assisting an elderly person into a wheel chair. From the moment volunteer firefighters are hired, until the day they retire, they are immersed in training. The numerous dangers of a superheated atmosphere inside of a structure fire are not ideal for "on the job training'' sessions. The BDVFD training group's vision's goal is to provide valuable training before a firefighter is presented with the many different types of emergency and non-emergency calls for service. Some of these training topics could include:
· Structural Firefighting
· Vehicle Firefighting
· Wildland Firefighting
· Vehicle Rescue
· Hazardous Materials
· Low / High angle Rescue
· Confined Space

Please feel free to contact BDVFD training group with any questions or concerns. As a modern fire department, we find that "thinking outside of the box" helps to accomplish all of the department's goals in an efficient and effective manner.
