Pine Country Training

Remote Training Facility - Pine Country

FETI at Pine Country was established as FETI's first satellite training facility in March of 2007. Since that time, Pine Country has steadily grown and has become a vital part of fire training in North Louisiana. As a training facility, Pine Country offers center-based training at its Camp Minden location and regional training throughout homeland security region 7. Utilizing a staff of 3 full-time and 5 part-time instructors, FETI at Pine Country offers a full complement of emergency training including recruit academies, fire service instructor and investigator, hazardous materials, and rescue. Development of new courses in wildland firefighting and wildland search and rescue is currently underway. 

Please Note: If more than one course charge is shown, the first charge applies to all Louisiana Municipal Fire Departments who are issued a Fire Department ID from the State Fire Marshal's Office and are supported by the 2% Fire Insurance Fund. The second charge applies to all non-Louisiana Municipal Fire Departments including state agencies (in-state and out-of-state), out-of-state fire departments, federal agencies, and the private sector, etc.
