Citizen Fire Academy

Learn What it Takes to Provide Fire & EMS Protection

The Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue is excited to announce that our Citizen Fire Academy is back. This interactive academy allows an inside look into the life of a firefighter. Through each night of this course, residents will be able to learn and witness the inside aspects of the Fire and EMS service. Have you ever handled the Jaws of Life? How about standing on a tower truck 100 feet off the ground? Or stepped on a fire boat? This is your chance to learn the variety of services offered by the Fire Division and have a fun-filled experience at the same time!

The Citizen Fire Academy typically runs for 8 consecutive weeks. We allow and encourage teens as young as 16 years old to attend with a participating parent or guardian. After all, we are always looking to recruit.
