Starting Monday, Aug. 10, the Winston-Salem Fire Department will begin a virtual Citizen Fire Academy featuring videos posted online in lieu of its traditional in-class program for city residents.

The virtual academy has eight videos that will be rolled out every Monday (except Labor Day) from Aug. 10 through Oct. 5. The videos will be a combination of information about how the Winston-Salem Fire Department operates and fire and life safety tips to keep you safe at home.

Topics include an overview of the Fire Department by Fire Chief Trey Mayo, instruction on how to conduct hands-only CPR, virtual tours of a fire station and a fire engine, home cooking safety tips and a video “scavenger hunt” for common fire and safety dangers in the home.

Residents can go to and sign up to receive reminder notifications every time a new video for the virtual Citizen Fire Academy is posted.
