The Henry County Fire Department is taking applications for the Citizens Fire Academy

Applications due by March 17, 2017

HENRY COUNTY, GA – March 10, 2017- The Citizens Fire Academy is an eight-week program designed to educate and inform citizens about fire and emergency services in order to achieve a greater understanding of the inner workings of the Henry County Fire Department.

The academy will begin on Tuesday, March 21, ending May 9. Classes will be held on Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Henry County Fire Department Headquarters located at 110 South Zack Hinton Parkway in McDonough. The instruction will include practical demonstrations that all participants are encouraged to participate in but because of the voluntary nature of the program, physical limitations of applicants will not be considered a reason for exclusion from the academy.

It is imperative that all participants understand that the Citizens Fire Academy is intended to be an informative experience to provide insight into how the fire department functions and what services they provide.  The goal is also to provide an enjoyable, interactive atmosphere in which fire department members and citizens can share information and concerns.  It is not intended to train participants as firefighters or to assist at any fires.  We hope the graduates of the Citizens’ Fire Academy become more aware and better informed about how the fire department operates and will encourage friends, coworkers and families to join the Henry County Fire Department in this rewarding program.

Class sizes are limited and potential candidates for the Citizens’ Fire Academy must be a minimum of 18 years of age, live in Henry County and have no prior felony arrests or misdemeanor arrests within six months of the application process.  For more information on the Citizens’ Fire Academy, please contact (770) 288-6641 or log on to www.co.henry.ga.us/Fire/CitizenFireAcademy.shtml.  Download the application and fax the completed forms to (770) 288- 6776 or email jlaster@co.henry.ga.us. Applications must be submitted no later than March 17.
