Training
Jon BoydOverview
Jon Boyd - Division Chief

The training division provides preparation on how firefighters should best respond to a wide variety of possible emergency incidents. The goal of the training division is to properly prepare every firefighter to respond with instinctive knowledge and expertise. The training schedule ranges from daily drills, half-day training sessions with other stations, all-day multi-city training and month-long certification courses.

In order to maintain the high standards of the Allen Fire Department, firefighters must learn and excel in many areas, including firefighting, search and rescue, emergency medicine, vehicle extrication, swift water rescue, trench collapse rescue, confined space rescue and hazardous materials. The department also provides leadership and management training to equip supervisors with the necessary knowledge to lead a company of firefighters.
