DOTHAN, AL--Pretty soon area firefighters won't have to travel far for training.
The agreement involves the Alabama Fire Department and Personnel Standards Commission.
Wiregrass firefighters usually travel to Tuscaloosa for higher training and certification courses.
Officials say the benefits of this new ability are tremendous.
"First of all we get to save a lot of money by having the class here and not having travel, motel rooms and all that for one week to Tuscaloosa, the other thing is they will actually pay us to hold the classes at our facility so we can take that money and actually either get additional slots for classes or turn that into expanding our training capabilities," said DFD Chief Larry Williams.
The classes may begin as early as October.
