The job of a firefighter involves extremely difficult physical work as well as the skill to apply previously acquired knowledge to work effectively as part of a team in emergency situations. Firefighters can wear over 40 lbs of protective clothing as they work to extinguish a fire. With this gear they must climb ladders, pull hoses and be prepared to rescue persons from burning buildings. Training in fire tactics is important - however - a firefighter must be trained in many other areas in order to control situations that are encountered in day-to-day operations. The Bellaire District Fire Department provides the community with the highest levels of trained and certified personnel. To maintain this level of proficiency, training is frequent and diverse.

Department Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians respond to your medical emergency needs and provide the highest level of pre-hospital care available. All EMS personnel are licensed by the State of Michigan and must renew their license every 3 years by submitting proof of having completed required training activities.
