Training is one of the most important things we do in the fire service. Our training facility is very well equipped, and thanks to the generosity of many local citizens and companies, most of our training equipment was secured with very little investment from the cities budget. We our also fortunate to have a large number of state certified instructors on staff with the Auburn Fire Department. Training sessions usually consist of a mixture of our full-time firefighters and our volunteer firefighters.

For more information about our training division, contact our training officer Division Chief Joe Molargik at 260-925-8255 ext 1503 or jcmolargik(at)
