We are currently planning the 2018 schedule of classes for Alger County.  If you would like to be part of this process, we welcome your input at the next meeting.

Emergency Drivers Training has been concluded. Classes that are upcoming are FF I. An Extrication class is being worked on for early next fall as well as a FF II class next fall.

We need lots more ideas and topics, so let us know what you want to see for training.
