The Citizen Fire Academy is a free 7-week program designed to open the lines of communication between the Bryan Fire Department and the community. The course provides a comprehensive overview of how the department operates and the types of services it offers with hands-on activities as well as a live fire demonstration at the end of the program. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years of age and committed to attend each class as space is limited to just 20 participants. The application is available on the Bryan Fire Department page and the deadline to apply is March 8th.
The weekly, 3-hour classes are held every Thursday evening at differing locations from 6 to 9 PM, March 22nd through May 5th, and a meal is provided at each class. Only one session is held annually with topics including Fire and EMS Operations, extrication, first aid, CPR, rescue, Haz-Mat, emergency management, investigations, and much more. As a part of the academy, there is also an opportunity for a ride-a-long in a fire engine. The session concludes with a live burn day at the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Brayton Fire Field on Saturday, May 5th.
Ready to register? Complete the application on the Bryan Fire Department page. Don’t delay! Space is limited to just 20 participants. Applications will be accepted through March 8th. Class locations will be provided once you are accepted into the academy.
