Plymouth firefighters repel training on the side of a buildingRequirements
Because of initial training requirements, time commitment for first-year firefighters is considerable and typically equals 60-80 hours per month, including training and calls. Training is provided by the West Suburban Fire Academy program. View the academy schedule outline to gauge time commitment and availability.

After completing the first year, firefighters work an average of 10-15 hours per week – responding to fire calls, working Duty Crew shifts, performing maintenance activities and attending training sessions.

Each firefighter is responsible for attending a minimum percentage of calls. All members must participate in the Duty Crew program and work a minimum number of scheduled shifts per quarter.
