Prescott Fire Department to Host Summer 2018 Citizens Fire Academy

06 May 2018   Don Devendorf, Fire Marshal
Besides gaining a fresh appreciation for the Fire Department, at the end of the Academy you get a Certificate from Fire Chief Dennis Light.

Learn about the fire department from the inside out. 

The Prescott Fire Department invites community members to get an inside look at how the department operates by attending a 2018 Citizens Fire Academy, held this June and July.

Participants will receive a complete overview of the various functions and services of the Prescott Fire Department, learn about the hiring process to become a Firefighter, what a typical day as a Firefighter consists of, as well as watch and interact with the men and women who serve the City of Prescott. Curriculum will be presented, which includes organizational structure and history, Fire-based Emergency Medical Services, Fire Suppression, Technical Rescue and Hazardous Material response.  According to Chief Dennis Light, “Reviews from last year’s academy were extremely favorable. The community member is guaranteed to leave much more informed on all elements of all-risk emergency response services provided to the City of Prescott and surrounding communities”. 

Classes will begin Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 6:00PM - 8:30PM and continue for the next five weeks and conclude with wrap up and graduation on Thursday, July 5, 2018.  

Participants must be 21 years of age and a legal U.S. resident.  Preference will be given to Prescott residents.

The deadline to apply is Friday, May 25th, at 4:00pm. Class size will be limited to 16 participants.
