The Delaware State Fire School provides training for the Delaware State Fire Police Officer to obtain the basic knowledge to perform the duties of a duly sworn Fire Police Officer in the State.
The training, in addition to any company-required training, will give you the knowledge of the duties of the Fire Police Officer, the laws and regulations surrounding the Fire Police Officer, and the roles and responsibilities to effectively and safely direct traffic at Fire and Emergency incidents in the State.
Once you have completed the online training required by the Delaware State Fire School, you may submit an application for training credit and a Basic Fire Police Certificate. Upon completion of the Basic Fire Police Course, a Delaware State Fire Police Identification Card can be issued with authorization from your sponsoring company.

Please submit the certificates and they will be displayed as a waiver at the bottom of your transcript. Since they are not Fire School classes, they will not count towards your cumulative Delaware State Fire School Training hours.

More details on how this system will be used by us with you to monitor your Responder Safety training in the near future.
Please contact Senior Instructor Vinnie Miller with any questions.
