Internship Program

The Nevada County Consolidated Fire District proudly continues the training program for individuals seeking to gain training and experience. This program continues to consist of Firefighter Academy students wishing to gain hands-on firefighter experience.  Interns are selected from an applicant pool twice each year and are stationed at fire stations assigned to one of our three shifts and work the same 48 hours on/96 hours off scheduled as our crews work! They get the valuable experience of being the third person on an engine company.

The goal of the program is to assist new Firefighter Academy Graduates in gaining valuable field experience and meeting the requirements of the Certified Firefighter II Task Book. This on-the-job and life-experience training has proved to be an asset to those who have completed the internship and moved on to take positions as firefighters at agencies across the nation.
