Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department (MFRD) is now accepting
applications for the Fall 2019 Citizens Fire Academy.
“We have revamped the academy and added new and exciting evolutions,”
said Fire & Life Safety Specialist Shan Womack. “We are eager to educate a
small group of area residents on the various aspects of the services we offer
Academy participants will receive an insider’s view of MFRD
operations. Students will have the opportunity to try on turnout gear, climb an
aerial ladder, receive hands-on training in CPR, extrication, hazardous
materials decontamination, and much, much more, including a GRAND FINALE of
live fire training!
The six weeks course will take place on Tuesday nights from
5:30 pm-9:00 pm beginning Tuesday, October 1. There will be no class on October
8 due to fall break schedules. Students will graduate November 12.
It is important to mention that the Citizens Fire Academy
is in no way job related. Completing the academy has no bearing on employment
with the City or MFRD.
Must be 18 or older to apply. The cost of the class is $35.00. Class size is limited and the deadline for application submission is September 1. Applications can be obtained online at: https://www.murfreesborotn.gov/DocumentCenter/View/9709/CITIZENS-FIRE-ACADEMY-APPLICATION-2019.
