Registration ends May 25th
Newport News Public Schools and the Newport News Fire Department have worked together to establish a Youth Fire Academy at Heritage High School that launches
at the start of the 2016 - 2017 school year. The Youth Fire Academy will be a 14 week program that will include CPR and First Aid certification, firefighting demonstrations and simulations, field trips, hands on activities, leadership development and community engagement.
Upon successful completion of the 14-week class, students will be eligible to move to the advanced phase of the Youth Fire Academy. The Advanced Youth Fire Academy includes job shadowing, ride-a-longs with the fire department, and mentorship by NNFD Firefighters. The goal is to prepare Youth Fire Academy members for careers in the Newport News Fire Department.
Applications are available online
