The mission of the Vidalia Fire Department's Training Department is to provide the most up to date training and information to the employees of the department.  Our Training Department meets all requirements set fourth by P.I.A.L. (Property Insurance Association of Louisiana).  The employees of the Vidalia Fire Department receives training daily both in the class room and with the use of hands on applications.  Training at our department is not something that is taken likely, we believe that training is one of the most important aspects of our business.  We keep our personnel training with the most up to date techniques and applications that have been proven to work.  


Most of the classes that are done at the department are prepared and presented by Battalion Chief Vanier through much studying and preparation.  If you or your department would like to receive some of Battalion Chief Vanier's class room materials including but not limited to power point presentations, handouts, and skill applications, please feel free to email the Training Department at the above email link with your request.  


The Vidalia Fire Department now has a Training Center for hands on and class room training.  The training center currently has a large class room for multi-company training, a live fire building, and a 4 story drill tower for high angle rescue training, and various multi-story training evolutions.
