Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: October 19, 2023 11:11 AM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano and Sen. Michele Brooks
To: All Senate members
Subject: Firefighter 1 Certification Process
In the near future, we plan on introducing legislation that would make it less cumbersome for firefighters to obtain their Firefighter 1 certification.
Under current law, a firefighter must pass through all modules before taking a cumulative test.  After a roundtable discussion with fire members and conversations with the State Fire Commissioner, we will be introducing legislation that would permit testing after each of the modules. 
Please join us in cosponsoring this legislation that is supported by the fire community. 

Introduced as SB1101
