Weekly Training:

Every Tuesday at 6:30pm

No training held on the second Tuesday of each month.


Training is a vital part of any Fire Department. With good training, we as emergency responders are able to practice and gain new knowledge to help us do our job quickly, effectively, and safely.

The Grayson Fire Department holds weekly training every Tuesday night starting at 6:30pm. There is no training held on the second Tuesday of each month due to Grayson Fire Department preventive maintenance and membership business meetings. We would like to invite other members of other departments to come train with us to gain new knowledge or just for a refresher on things that had been learned years ago. We look forward to seeing you for training.

New Kentucky Firefighter Certification Hours Requirement


Basic 1 Certification

View Downloadable Version

Basic 2 Certification

View Downloadable Version

As of January 3, 2023, the Basic 1 & Basic 2 certifications have been implemented. If a firefighter was not certified as a 150- or 400- hour firefighter prior to this date, they will now be required to fulfill the requirements of Basic 1 (115 hours) and Basic 2 (300 hours).

If a firefighter has not been certified to the 150 or 400 hour level, and has at least 6 hours in Firefighter Survival, Firefighter Rescue, or Flashover Awareness categories, they will be considered compliant to the new Basic 1 and Basic 2 certification levels in that category and will not have to produce proof of skills completion in that category.

If you have any questions about implementation of these levels, please email
