The City of Weatherford Fire Department will be offering a Citizens Fire Academy beginning Thursday, July 30, located at 122 S. Alamo St. (Fire Station 1).
The two month academy will introduce citizens to fire service and provide educational opportunities about the functions of the Weatherford Fire Department. Class topics will address fire behavior and science, portable fire extinguishers, personal protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus, search drills, city incident management system, ropes and knots, ladder drills, fire hose and nozzles, fire prevention and investigation, EMS and CPR and the fire department physical ability test.
“The Citizens Fire Academy is a great opportunity for citizens to gain knowledge and learn about the Weatherford Fire Department,” said Fire Chief Paul Rust. “A small graduation will be held after completion of the academy to recognize the participating citizens. The intent is for Weatherford citizens to learn directly from our firefighters, fire chief and fire marshal regarding our operations.”
Citizens can register for the academy by contacting Emergency Management Specialist Cody Mulloy at 817-598-4293 or .
