[ARCHIVED] Jr. and High School Fire Academy


The 2019 dates have been announced for the Schertz Fire Rescue Jr. and High School Fire Academies. The Jr. Fire Academy is open to 5th and 6th graders, and the new High School Fire Academy is open to 9th-12th graders. Both academies will be June 3-7 from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM. 

The Schertz Fire Rescue Fire Academies give students a chance to learn about some of the daily operations of the Schertz Fire Department while getting hands on with some fun activities. The program is open to boys and girls in the Schertz community and instils camaraderie, teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence.

Student firefighters will receive hands on training and experience of day-to-day firefighter duties. Participants will learn a variety of firefighting skills including rope rescue, fire streams, hazmat response, vehicle extrication, thermal imagery, pumping operations, fire extinguisher training, fire chemistry and fire prevention. The High School Fire Academy will offer an advanced learning experience where they will dive deeper into these skills and topics. High school students can experience what being a firefighter is like and decide if a career in firefighting is in their future.
