Resident Trainee

Station 101

Members of the Resident Trainee program at Lane Fire Authority can receive full-time accommodation, a monthly allowance, and coverage for their education in return for committing to work 48-hour shifts with  career and volunteer teams. Participants in the program will acquire hands-on experience in firefighting and emergency medical services (EMS) through practical training. This training encompasses handling emergency calls, learning to work on shifts, and attending the Lane Fire Firefighter 1 academy (if necessary). The Lane Fire Authority's Resident Trainee program is designed to span up to three years, enabling participants to complete their training with several National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) certifications, including Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Instructor I, and certification for operating fire apparatus equipped with a fire pump.


Resident trainee's are entitled to a complimentary full-time residence at one of the stations, tuition reimbursement, and a monthly shift stipend of up to $550. Moreover, they will enjoy standard volunteer benefits such as being eligible for emergency call response reimbursement of up to $600 per year, with any excess amount being allocated to a LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) account for retirement purposes. Additionally, resident trainee's will be provided with a cell phone stipend to support their communication needs.
