Fire Youth Academy
The Fire Youth Academy is a one-week program designed to show students what we do in the fire service. In this one-week program students aged 15-18 go through a weeklong Academy, based on the actual Fire Academy new hires go through.
During the FYA, students learn skills such as:
Using Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
Search and rescue drills
Use of fire hose lines and extinguishers
Students also regularly participate in physical fitness activities and build teamwork and memories for a lifetime!
