It is the mission of the McAdory Area Fire District Training Division to provide the highest quality training, instruction and evaluation to its members. This is intended to prepare our department to serve our community in the most efficient and effective means possible , and to ensure personal safety as we deliver this service. This training includes fire ground tactics, hazardous materials, territory training and yearly apparatus operator refreshers. The training office is responsible for ensuring all firefighters meet the minimum standards as required by the Alabama Fire College. Certification classes are offered throughout the year to continue further education. Our office also oversees the department volunteer program. McAdory Area Fire District is a combination department and continues to rely on our volunteers in support roles. We ensure that all of our volunteers meet and or exceed our minimum standards. If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a volunteer you can contact Lt Cunningham or Firefighter Cody Davis.
The public education division is responsible for fire prevention education and outreach services. Fire safety education is an important part of the overall duties assigned to the Fire Department. The Department develops and coordinates a variety of public education and training programs that are used in the community. These programs range from programs targeted at young children through programs targeting adult audiences. Since 2007 we have partnered with McAdory Elementary school targeting the 3rd grade level. Each month we go into the school and present a different topic on fire safety. This program has proven to be a great success for our community. We also provide other classes including CPR and child safety seat instruction. To learn more about this program or to schedule a class please contact Lieutenant Micah Cunningham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emergency Medical Services
High quality emergency medical care is defined by the decisions made on each and every patient encounter. The challenge EMS providers face is to make important, sometimes critical decisions with limited amount of information. Other times McAdory Fire personnel are called solely for their medical opinions. In all cases potential patients are approached with great professionalism and concern for their well being. The EMS office is responsible for the education and training of our Paramedics and EMT's to maintain state licensure as well as quality improvement of all patient care reporting. The department currently responds 2 Advanced Life support engine companies and 1 ALS rescue transport unit. Any questions or concerns for the EMS office can be emailed to Captain Lockhart at Captlockhart@mcadoryfire.com.
