The College Station Citizen’s Fire Academy is a learning program for people who reside or work in the Brazos Valley and who want to know more about their fire department. It is our desire to increase awareness about the Fire Department with our local residents, so that these residents will become well-informed citizens who can become more involved with the long-term safety of our community. We will demonstrate the day to day operations of the Fire Department. We are committed to the community we serve and we are determined to be at the forefront of fire and injury prevention and rescue. The Academy involves 3 hours a week for twelve weeks.
