Education and Training At SAFD
The Sable Altura Fire Department is proud to be recognized by the State of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment - Emergency Medical and Trauma Services Division as an EMT, IV, Intermediate, and Paramedic CE Training Group #151-CO.
We welcome outside agencies at our EMS or Fire Training sessions for their Continuing Education or JPR-based needs. For EMS we offer IV Approval, Basic EKG, ACLS, CPR, PEPP, EMT and Paramedic Refreshers and more. For Fire we hold a full Firefighter I Academy, Hazardous Materials - Operations, and Firefighter II courses just to name a few.
We've become a leader in innovation by delivering distance-based education via our Education Portal. A few of our courses can be taken directly online as a standalone course (such as CE's), however our industry is a skill-based one and most of our courses are delivered in "hybrid" format (both online, and skill days). We feel that we've become a leader in this delivery format, and have proven it's success time and again.
Individuals or agencies interested in training opportunities should contact our administrative offices at 303-364-7187 for dates and information. We also list any planned courses under "Upcoming Courses". You're encouraged to register for those courses using our online registration form.
Note- If you are looking for your initial certification as an EMT or Paramedic, we cannot help you. You must seek out this education from either a educational (such as community colleges) or hospital-based entity. We can help direct you to some options however based on our agency partnerships.
