QFD running the academy for the second straight year

Quincy Fire Department is hosting the 2nd Citizens Fire Academy starting March 18th.

The classes will run from March 18th through May 20, 2014.   The classes will be held each Tuesday evening from 6-9pm. The graduation will be on May 20th with a meal and each participant being recognized and given a chance to speak. Our first academy consisted of firefighters family members and Fire Department Rehab team members, and was very successful.  This academy is now open to the public.  

We will take 15 participants who want to experience hands on firefighting skills.  We will also accept  a small number of others who would like to observe but not participate in the hands on portion of the classes.

The classes will be held at the Quincy Regional Training Facility at 1900 Seminary Road. People who are interested can call 217-228-4459 to register.  There is no fee to participate.  

More class information will be available on the city website within the next couple of weeks.
