Participants will practice medical skills, complete tasks in HazMat suits and fire equipment, and tour the 911 communications center. Students will finish the academy with a CPR certification as well as have completed the National Stop the Bleed education. We will have representatives from each division to talk about the education and skills needed to do their jobs. They will also be available to answer questions about the job.
