Our annual Citizen Fire Academy enhances and develops the community’s awareness and understanding of our role.

The 10-week program improves the relationship between citizens and firefighters and forms a partnership for a safer community.

The Citizen Fire Academy creates a well-informed cross-section of people. Instructors convey information about the fire department and fire service competently and professionally, through a series of classroom lectures, facility tours, demonstrations and practical evolutions.

Participants tour the station and have an overview of the fire departments. They also learn about personal protective equipment, vehicle extrication, technical rescue, hazardous materials, engine and truck company operations, fire prevention and emergency management.
