Brewster Fire/Rescue Accepting Citizens Fire Academy Applications

Brewster Fire/Rescue will be hosting a Citizens Fire Academy beginning Wednesday October 19. The seven-week program will meet each Wednesday evening at Brewster Fire Headquarters 1671 Main Street from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Academy participants will receive an inside view of Brewster Fire/Rescue and during each session will acquire information on a distinctive component of the organization ranging from daily administration and operations, staffing, emergency medical services, fire suppression response, motor vehicle extrication, fire prevention, and technical rescue services. Attendees will also obtain CPR and First Aid certification and visit the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Communications Center to become more familiar with the 911 and fire dispatch services our community utilizes. The program is designed to ensure each participant acquires an in-depth understanding of the Brewster Fire/Rescue and the professional life safety emergency services we provide the community.

Each week a new topic will be discussed in classroom settings and participants will also be involved in performing a series of hands-on activities taught by the experienced men and women of Brewster Fire Department.

Participants must be 18 years of age. Participants who live or work in the Town of Brewster will be given preference. There is no program fee.

Applications are available at Fire Headquarters beginning Thursday September 8 Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm beginning Thursday September 8 or online at the link below. Space is limited to 20 participants.
