Welcome to the Central Iowa Training Association!


Our Association takes great pride in our Annual Fire School

30th Annual CITA-Kirkwood Fire School

September 24 and 25, 2016
Kirkwood Community College

Thank you to all that attended the 29th Annual Fire School, the weather was perfect and a lot of learning took place. Certificates went out in the mail on October 7th. If you do not receive a certificate it is because of two reasons:

1. You neglected to sign-in at class.

2. Your Fire Department has not paid their invoice. (I will be checking this weekly and will be mailed
upon receipt of payment)
