Training

The Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department (PVVFD) is very proud of its commitment to train our membership. We have many programs that not only train/educate our personnel, but also challenge them. We have distinct steps of progression to help members achieve personal and organizational goals.

  • Training to prepare for various levels of State certification (State of Tennessee Commission on Firefighting). Firefighter I and II, Haz-Mat Awareness and Operations, Fire Instructor, Fire Officer, etc.
  • Live Burn requirements (In-house and send members to TFACA)
  • Driving program for various apparatus (Engine, Squad, Tanker, etc.)
  • Company Officer/Shift Commander development program
