Citizen's Fire Academy

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a firefighter/paramedic?  Do you want to learn about fire suppression and rescue?  Would you like to view the department from a unique perspective?  Consider joining our Citizen’s Fire Academy. 

The Citizen’s Fire Academy offers residents new insights into how firefighters/paramedics perform their duties and serve the community.  It is also a great way to foster better communication between citizens and fire personnel through education.  The Academy consists of eight classes focused on topics such as Hazardous Material Processing, Juvenile Fire Setters, Automobile Extrication, and more. 

Our next course will begin March 31, 2014.  Sessions will be held on Monday evenings starting at 7:00 pm.  This eight-week course will end on May 19, 2014. Applications are required and can be obtained at the Streamwood Fire Department or on-line here.  Please note that applications will be due on Friday, March 14, 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact Chief Chris Clark at (630) 736-3650 or by email cclark@streamwood.org.
