Firefighter Training

Training is one of the most important things we do. With a large number of state-certified instructors on staff, we’re able to offer training sessions to many neighboring cities. For more information, contact Division Chief Joe Molargik at 260.925.8255 ext. 1503 or jcmolargik@ci.auburn.in.us.

KnoxBox for Businesses

When seconds matter, it’s important that first responders have rapid access to your building. The KnoxBox enables immediate access and helps avoid unsafe forced entry—ultimately, reducing injuries and minimizing property damage.
