Citizen Fire Academy 2017

Mission: We will provide citizens with an overview of the services that Starkville Fire Department provides, increase fire and life safety awareness, and promote a positive image of the department to the community.

Overview of the Citizens Fire Academy: Designed for adults to learn more about how the fire department is organized and operates. The Citizens Fire Academy (CFA) is open to persons 18 and older who live in Starkville or Oktibbeha County. Classes will meet 6 (six) consecutive Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., from July 13, 2017 to August 17, 2017. Each night, CFA participants learn about a different aspect of the fire department, ranging from emergency medical services to hiring and training firefighters to special rescue operations. During the 6 weeks of the class, CFA participants also spend time at the fire stations and at the 911 center. Participants will also be certified in CPR and First Aid. All training evolutions are on a volunteer basis.
