Life Saving Courses

The Marion Fire Department is dedicated to the preservation of life and the well-being of our community.

This dedication is shown through the many courses that we teach throughout the year. We have dedicated firefighters who are American Heart Association C.P.R. instructors. We offer many different types of life saving courses, and will teach small or large groups, or a group of individuals.
