Department in the Spotlight - Santa Barbara City Fire Department

Thanks in part to training dollars secured through their participation in the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee, firefighters from the Santa Barbara City Fire Department recently underwent flashover recognition training at the Ventura County Fire Department’s Regional Training Center.

The training, which is conducted as part of the department’s academy, is designed to give firefighters the ability to recognize potentially dangerous conditions that may be present immediately before a flashover event.
