Junior Fire Academy @ Burleson Fire Department

What does it really take to be a firefighter? Your future fifth grader can discover that this summer when the Burleson Fire Department hosts two free four-day (from 8 a.m. – noon) Junior Fire Academy sessions in 2019.

Junior Fire Academy is for students who are entering the fifth grade in the fall of 2019. Each academy is limited to 12 students.

Participants receive their own bunker gear, tour the fire stations, and learn about disaster safety, extrication, fire safety, fire hydrants, fire hoses and ladders. The search and rescue training involves a maze (simulated dark conditions) in the training tower at Fire Station #2.

Applications are also available at Fire Station #1, 828 S.W. Alsbury Blvd. Contact Firefighter Dennis Koslowsky or Secretary Kristie Menchaca at 817-426-9176 for more information.
