COLUMBUS, Ohio — Some Ohio fire departments — including five in the Dayton region — are using a new Internet training service to help firefighters meet new state requirements.
Ohio firefighters and emergency personnel previously did not need to receive additional training or renew their certificates, but a change in state law required firefighters to earn 54 hours of continuing education courses every three years to keep their certification starting in 2010.
