Firefighter Internship Program
The City of Grass Valley Fire Department in conjunction with the Nevada County Consolidated Fire District and City of Nevada City Fire Department proudly enters another year of the entry level training program for Interns. This program continues to consist of Firefighter Academy students wishing to gain hands on firefighter experience.
Interns are selected from an applicant pool twice each year and are stationed on local Engines throughout the county.
The goal of the program is to assist new Firefighter Academy Graduates in gaining valuable field experience required to obtain the Firefighter I certification. Each intern is assigned a shift and works on a local engine and attends all engine company and ladder truck trainings during the program. This on the job and life experience training has proved to be an asset to those who have completed the internship and moved on to take positions as firefighters at agencies across the nation.
