Citizen's Fire Academy Returns in March

Participants learn about technical rescue and auto extrication during the Citizen's Fire Academy.

After a hiatus during the pandemic, the Citizen's Fire Academy is returning in 2023! The academy is an exciting, interactive program that offers an authentic look into the operations of the fire service. After attending, participants are equipped with the knowledge they need to improve fire preparedness and resiliency on their own properties and in their communities. 

Weekly topics at the academy include hazardous materials, water and ice rescue, emergency medical services, technical rescue, wildland fire, and more.

Classes are held on every Wednesday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday, March 22. The first day of the academy will include a tour of our brand new Station 9. The academy ends with a fun, hands-on day of activities at our Training Center on Saturday, April 29 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

Adults 18 and older are invited to register online for the academy. There is a $10 fee to register. Space is limited.
