Albemarle Citizens Fire Rescue Academy Kicks Off October 22

Posted: Updated:

Albemarle County Fire and Rescue is giving everyone a chance to get a glimpse into the life of a firefighter.

The Albemarle County Citizens Fire Rescue Academy kicks off October 22 at the Hollymead Fire Rescue Station.  Participants will learn how the fire equipment works, lifesaving procedures and get to experience firsthand what it's like to be a firefighter in an emergency situation.

"The main goal of our citizens fire rescue academy is to engage with our community and our citizens and try to teach them a little bit about what we do on a daily basis," Albemarle County Deputy Fire Chief John Oprandy said.  "Sometimes it's pretty obvious, you see us out on the streets, but there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes."

The six-week course is free of charge and open to anyone.  Registration is underway through next Friday.  Click here for more information.
