CRFA Basic Firefighter Academy Update...

The California Fire and Rescue Training Authority (CFRTA) has discontinued the California Regional Fire  Academy (CRFA) for the remainder of the calendar year (2015). 

There are no Regional Fire Academies scheduled in  the foreseeable future.

This action is being taken for a number of reasons, including but not limited to the following;
1. Metro Fire is hiring at faster rate than in previous years and Station 21 (previous home of CRFA) is not available for CFRTA’s use.
2. CFRTA administratively manages both Sacramento Fire Department and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District’s academies and is faced with an increased workload for it’s own Joint Powers Authority (JPA) members.
3. ARC funding for the Regional Fire Academy, and other restrictions have made the Regional Fire Academy not financially viable for the JPA.
4. California Fire and Rescue Training Authority is restructuring its priorities to meet the objectives of the Joint Powers Authority.
