Monday Night Training
Dinner 17:30 – Training 18:00
First Monday of each Month
The 2018 Hands-On Training Events are for all of our Volunteers. These events will be held at Station #34 unless otherwise directed. We have put together topics that were requested and ones that are required for continuing training. The topics will include many sub-training components, that will be addressed to go along with the main topics. Volunteer staff should make every effort to attend these sessions, for up to date training on our procedures and equipment. Click on above schedule for dates and topics. You will be notified if dates or times change.
Thanks for all that you do everyday!!

Chain Saw Safety/Use Training – September 23, 2017
Low Angle Rescue Training – August 5, 2017
Because our work is so important, we make sure all our firefighters and emergency response personnel are properly trained and equipped. We provide the equipment, clothing, insurance and training.
The training opportunities are ongoing. Our firefighters receive initial and continuing training as first responders as well as instruction in handling emergencies in firefighting, auto extrication, dealing with hazardous materials, flammable liquids and gas, and technical rescues that meet the requirements of the South Carolina Fire Academy and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. We conduct “All Hands Training” training once a month with specialized “Hands-On Training” and “Medical Training” sessions scheduled as appropriate.
This year the Volunteers of Glassy Mountain Fire Department gave back to the community more than 30,528 hours of service valued at more than $688,417.00.
