How to become a firefighter?
New recruits of Scio Fire District are sent through a firefighter academy that is held from January to June with classes held on every other weekend. While going through Academy we still want our recruits to learn the ropes by running calls with our existing firefighters. During Academy, students learn the basic functions of being a firefighter. Such as learning: ropes/knots, ladders, donning/doffing firefighter turnouts, basic hazmat operations, and more! This academy is a physical and book work course.

What does a firefighter do:
At Scio Fire District our number one goal is SAFETY, not only for us but for everyone. 
 As a firefighter our duties include but do not limit: 
- Respond to 911 dispatched calls
- Structure Fires
- Vehicle Fires
- Wildland Fires
- Continuously train on skills
- And More!
