LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Little Rock Fire Department plans to hold its annual Citizens Fire Academy from August 16 through October 4, 2012, according to a release.
The Fire Department will provide the citizens of Little Rock with a vivid picture of the services provided by the men and women of the LRFD. Our goal is to increase fire and life safety awareness and promote the department's commitment to customer service.
Participants will garner a greater knowledge of our core job functions with classroom instruction, hands-on participation and live demonstrations.
This program is for Little Rock residents who are 21 or older and are interested in learning more about how the LRFD is organized and how it conducts operations. Participants will meet at the Fire Training Academy once a week and learn about various subjects such as Little Rock's hiring and training process, apparatus familiarization, hazardous materials team, USAR (Urban Search and Rescue), fire tactics and strategies, along with other engaging topics.
The application enrollment period is from July 9, 2012 to August 15, 2012. Class begins Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. If you would like more information about the LRFD Citizens Fire Academy, contact Fire Administration at 501-918-3700.
