Euless: Citizens Fire Academy Starts on February 7
Much like the Citizens Police Academy, the Citizens Fire Academy (ECFA) is a program designed to show Euless citizens what their Fire Department does on a daily basis.
Participants learn about the capabilities of firefighters and emergency medical personnel through lectures and hands-on demonstrations.
The Academy is a 13-week course covering:
- The history of the Euless Fire Department
- Use of self-contained breathing apparatus and protective firefighter clothing
- Search and rescue operations
- CFA fire hose methods
- Vehicle extrication
- Emergency medical operations and CPR
- Live fire training scenarios
- And much more!
The CFA meets one evening a week, with two optional Saturday exercises available for willing participants. The class is free of charge for citizens age 18 or older who live or work in the City of Euless. Applications are available online at eulesstx.gov/fire/cfa.htm. To enroll or to get more information, please call 817-685-1600.
