City of Saginaw MI -
Training and Safety Division

The Training Division is responsible for providing solid, realistic, and on-going training to meet the needs of our firefighters. The function of the Training Division is to conduct, coordinate and manage training safety and health programs. Our training programs are designed to enhance the professional development of firefighters through multi-faceted courses that meet the requirements of law. Training and education are recognized as an essential key in keeping the community safe from disasters and hostile fires. The focus of the safety and health program is the reduction of injuries and hazards. The program utilizes a process of review, investigation, inspection, documentation, and training which simultaneously limits the City’s liability against fines and lawsuits for noncompliance of laws and standards.

In addition to regular in-house training, the Saginaw Fire Department collaborates with other Fire Departments and outside agencies such as the US Coast Guard, DNR and Saginaw County Dive Team to conduct training in fire ground operations, firefighter survival, Hazardous Materials, and Water & Ice rescue.


Enhanced Law Enforcement Response to Victims Initiative:

The Saginaw Police Department is one of only three law enforcement agencies in the country that has been selected to participate in a unique program designed to help reduce crime, support victims, and enhance public safety. We ask that the residents of Saginaw participate in this anonymous survey being conducted by Saginaw Valley State University. Your participation will help the City of Saginaw Police Department expand its capacity to meet the needs of crime victims, and broaden those services where a need is indicated.
