Feb. 21 - Citizen Academy Application Deadline

There is still time to sign up for the Westminster Fire Department Citizen Academy.  This free 13-week course is to learn about the wide-range of services WFD provides as well as the logic behind the emergency services system.  Each session covers an aspect of the fire department such as fire prevention, hazardous materials, or fire extinguishers and includes classroom time and hands-on activities. The course is geared to inform citizens about WFD operations as well as teach residents fire and life safety.  

Classes are held on Thursday evenings, 6-10 p.m., Feb. 28 through May 23.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and are subject to a background check. There is no fee for the course unless CPR certification is desired; CPR certification is $25. The class size is limited to 20 participants and preference is given to Westminster residents. Applications are considered in the order they are received.
