“The Delaware State Fire School, under the auspices of the State Fire Prevention Commission, provides Fire, Rescue, Emergency Medical Training and Public Fire Safety Education to the Fire and Rescue service, as well as, to Industry and Citizens of our State.

The strong support and belief in our mission, goals and objectives by the Governor and members of the General Assembly have enabled us to achieve the reputation of being one of the finest training facilities in our nation. However, even more important is our ability to provide training, which on a daily basis, helps ensure the safety of all the citizens of Delaware, their property and the environment whenever an emergency occurs.

As the Director of the Fire School along with this dedicated Staff, we will build upon the strong foundation provided by the former employees to continue the excellence that has become expected of your Fire School.

We will continue to be responsive to the needs of our Fire, Rescue, Emergency Medical Services and those of our other customers. As we do business in a smarter, more technologically advanced world we are and will be prepared to meet our mission.”
