Youth Firefighting Academy Scheduled for June 17-18
West Pierce Fire & Rescue is hosting the 5th annual Youth Academy the weekend of June 17-18, 2023 and will be accepting applications through May 15, 2023. This two-day program teaches teens interested in a career in the fire service about what it means to be a firefighter.
The weekend will be filled with lots of hands-on learning (taught by WPFR personnel) and will allow students to understand how firefighters are trained to be prepared for any 9-1-1 call. There is no cost to attend and all gear is provided.
