Become a Volunteer


Hyalite Rural Fire District holds two recruit academies every year, spring and fall. This takes our new members through a three-month training system in which they will earn their Fire Fighter I certification. They will also be trained in basic vehicle extrication, fire behavior, building construction, and risk assessment/management. 

Once recruit academy is completed, the new members attend weekly training on Wednesday nights in order to continue developing new skills as well as maintaining proficiency basic fire suppression tactics. 


The next Recruit Academy will begin in Spring, 2021.  Check back for important scheduling dates.
