The Colleyville Fire Department is now accepting applications for this year’s Citizen’s Fire Academy. The six-week program allows Colleyville residents to experience firefighting in a fun, interactive, educational fashion. Classes begin Thursday, March 2, 2017, at 6:30 p.m.
The course features hands-on learning opportunities to teach topics including fire basics, fire scene operations, EMS and medical operations, hazardous materials response tactics, and aero-medical operations.
People who complete the course can become members of the Colleville Citizen’s Fire Academy Alumni Association, which supports firefighters and fire staff. Alumni Association members are also on-scene during fires manning the rehabilitation vehicle. Applications for the academy are available online at the Fire Department’s webpage. Applications are due Feb. 28. Those interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or call 817.503.1400.
