Westminster Fire Citizen Academy application deadline extended

(Feb 21, 2013) The Westminster Fire Department is offering a free, 13-week course for citizens to learn about the fire service. Vehicle extrication, emergency medical response, water rescue and fire operations are just a few of the topics included in the course. The format includes classroom lecture and hands-on experiences. The course is designed not only to inform what the fire department does and why, but also give some practical safety knowledge. Classes are Thursdays, March 7 – May 30, from 6-10 p.m.


Applications are due Wednesday, Feb. 27. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and are subject to a background check. This course is to gain community knowledge - it’s not a precursor to a career in fire or emergency services.

There is no fee for the course unless CPR certification is desired; CPR certification is $25.

The session is limited to 20 participants and preference is given to Westminster residents.

Applications are considered in the order they are received. Registration forms are available online or at the Westminster Fire Department Administrative Offices, 9110 Yates St.
