"Dago Te", Welcome to the White Mountain Apache Tribe

» Training Opportunities

The purpose of this page is to provide information on on-going training and educational programs to fire service personnel in the White Mountain region. Every effort is made to keep our firefighters up on the latest trends and technologies relevant to our profession.

With Emergency Medical Services also being a vital aspect of our emergency services delivery, it is also incumbent upon our training to provide EMS continuing education credits and programs. Our organization works in cooperation with Northland Pioneer College to provide the certification and recertification requirements for our EMTs and First Responders.

If you would like to have your Fire and EMS service related training posted that would benefit the White Mountain, please contact Deputy Chief Brock at (928) 334-2206. Please provide all the information requested in the schedule and a flyer of the training so it can be posted.
