Ever dream of being firefighter? Well stop dreaming and start doing at the Junior Fire Academy! Participants develop life long skills not only learning about emergency preparedness, but also how to work together to accomplish tasks. Taught by professional firefighters, participants learn skills including: First Aid, CPR, exit drills, fire extinguisher use, disaster preparedness, and home safety. In addition to the practical skills they can use<br>everyday, participants learn what its like to be a firefighter by extinguishing fire with fire hoses, proper lifting techniques for moving ladders and hose, hose management, and they even get to climb the 100 foot tall ladder! All activities are optional, but positive, encouraging attitudes are not. This is a great opportunity to explore a day in the life of a firefighter! Bring a bag lunch Monday-Thursday. On Friday at noon, family and friends are encouraged to attend the potluck lunch just before the Skills Presentation and Graduation Ceremony.<br>Please indicate T-shirt size (including youth or adult) when signing up. <br>Location: Mon. &AMP; Tues. camp meets @ PAL Building, 3399 Bay Rd, RWC ; Wed, Thurs. &AMP; Fri. meets @ Fire Station 9, 755 Marshall St., RWC (long pants and closed toed shoes required)<br>Note: Camp start time is 10am
