Cal-JAC Participating Departments

The Cal-JAC program is a recognized leader in the area of standardized education and training for front line firefighters in California.

When departments and their respective labor associations (see Partnership for Success), subscribe to the Cal-JAC , they are agreeing to provide their apprentices valuable instruction while meeting the Cal-JAC standards, which parallel the State Board of Fire Services and National Fire Protection Association standards.

  • For our profession, it means state-of-the-art training built on a solid labor-management collaboration.
  • For departments, it means additional funding to insure that the next generation of firefighters is well-trained.
  • For firefighters, it means that training is developed that is relevant to their needs and the needs of their community.

Please contact us to find out how the Cal-JAC program can benefit your department.
