SECONDARY FIRE ACADEMY

The Secondary Fire Academy is a program designed to meet the requirements and parameters of the Secondary School Graduation Program where students are required to complete 100 hours of career related work.

In addition, the students will learn information that will enhance their current skills and knowledge, particularly in physical training, teamwork and mechanical aptitude.

The entire program scheduled into one week period format over spring break. A total of eight students will be accepted this year.  They will follow a structured training program that varies each day.
