Why You Should Try the Citizen's Fire Academy
Does the thought of scaling a 100 foot ladder excite you? Would you like to use the “Jaws of Life” to cut a patient out of a car? Does the prospect of leading a fire company into a burning building get your pulse racing? If so, then the Hoffman Estates Fire Department would like to invite you to our 20th annual Citizens Fire Academy.
The Citizens Fire Academy is an opportunity for the residents of the village to experience, and learn about the inner workings of their fire department. Not only will you get the chance to participate in the exciting opportunities listed above, but you will also learn valuable lessons regarding home fire safety, CPR, and the history of the Hoffman Estates Fire Department in a fun and relaxed environment.
Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm at station 24 located at 5775 Beacon Point Drive. The academy starts on August 28th, 2019 and will end on November 4th, 2019.
