Training Overview

Kentucky is honored by those who, with heroism and selflessness, faithfully serve the people of this commonwealth each and every day. We are continually inspired by the heroic sacrifices of our firefighters, rescue and law-enforcement personnel, military-service members, and community volunteers, who in times of crisis provide our communities with unity, focus, and strength.

Kentucky’s first responders embody our commonwealth’s highest ideals of courage and devotion to duty, and that is why the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security is committed to ensuring that first responders are properly trained and equipped to preserve the public safety and ensure our commonwealth is ready and prepared.
