[ARCHIVED] Virtual Citizen Fire Academy - Video 4 Fire Extinguisher

Fire Extinguisher

The Citizen Fire Academy is offered residents as an opportunity to learn about the functions of the Winston-Salem Fire Department. Participants will learn about fire department operations and receive hands-on experience in fire and life safety. The 2021 session will be held virtually. 

Program Details

The Citizen Fire Academy will be held virtually on Thursdays, Aug.19th - Sept.30. Each week you will learn something new about how the Winston-Salem Fire Department operates, as well as various Fire and life safety tips you can use in your home.

Topics this year include “Meet the Fire Chief,” where you will hear from our very own Fire Chief, Trey Mayo about what it takes to run the department. Also see a demonstration of “Hands-Only CPR” to learn this life-saving technique. Come take a “Virtual Fire Station Tour” and get an up-close look at our fire apparatus and life in the firehouse. Get some helpful tips about cooking safety and learn the proper way to use and store a fire. You will also get a peek into the firefighter life and see what it takes to become a WSFD firefighter. 

The link to access sessions will be emailed to you weekly. 
The link will be available after 9:00a.m. each Thursday.
