CFA
Greer Fire Department accepting Citizens Academy applications
Becoming a firefighter is the childhood dream of many. But have you ever wondered what firefighters do on a daily basis? The Greer Fire Department will provide the opportunity to learn just that during its third Citizens Fire Academy beginning Sept. 27.
Applications are now being accepted for the free eight-week course designed to introduce participants to the functions and daily operations of the City of Greer Fire Department. A link to the application and release form is below.

The academy provides both classroom and hands-on training, offering a fun and safe behind-the-scenes look at what is means to be a firefighter. Participates will have an opportunity to tour the City’s fire stations and dispatch center, and meet its firefighters and 911 personnel.  During the course, participants will try on personal protective equipment, extinguish a fire, participate on a ride-along, and learn CPR and home fire safety tips from professional firefighters.

Class sessions will be held on Thursdays from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at GPD's Station 2, the training facility located at 1985 Hood Rd.

A limited number of applications will be approved for the 2018 Academy. Applications must be submitted no later than Aug. 31.
