Brad Terry named permanent program director for Idaho Fire Service Training 

Brad Terry has been appointed permanent Program Director for Idaho’s Fire Service Training (FST), effective April 1.

Idaho Fire Service Training, housed within the Idaho Division of Career Technical Education (IDCTE), plays a crucial role in Idaho’s fire service community. As an accredited entity through the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress, Idaho FST offers access to industry credentialing, maintains transcripts, and provides training.

Terry brings extensive experience to his new role, including four years in the Marines and 17 years in the Air Force, including two deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Terry also served more than 26 years with the Nampa Fire Department. He progressed through various positions within the department, including firefighter, engineer, captain, shift training officer, and battalion chief, finally retiring in 2021.

“Since August, Brad has been serving in an interim role leading the work of Idaho’s Fire Service Training,” said Clay Long, IDCTE’s state administrator. “I’m excited to have Brad take the helm in the permanent role to continue building and moving FST forward.”

Terry is honored to serve in this new capacity.

“It’s a privilege to continue serving the firefighting community and contributing to the invaluable work of Idaho FST,” said Terry.
