WHAT IS THE CITIZENS FIRE ACADEMY?
The Citizens Fire Academy is the newest training program offered by the Shreveport Fire Department. This program is designed for community leaders and other citizens who have a genuine desire to reduce the number of lives lost and the amount of property damage in our city. This program covers departmental policies, procedures, staffing and the "whys" of Fire Department operations. This ten day dynamic program will provide knowledge in fire prevention, rescue, communication, hazardous material identification, extinguisher training, basic first aid, and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Citizens will be allowed to participate in practical drills, both firefighting and emergency medical exercises. Participants will complete this course being more conscious of their environment and safety oriented. Certificates will be awarded during graduation exercises to be held at the completion of this course.
The course participants meet once a week at a designated location for ten weeks. Classes meet from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and requires a commitment from the citizens to attend all sessions. Students are to provide their own transportation to and from each class. Casual clothing is recommended.
