JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The Jackson Fire Department is preparing for its Citizens’ Fire Academy. 

The purpose of the academy is to raise awareness of fire and emergency operations.

The overall goals of the academy are:

  • To educate our citizens about the basic tactics and strategies of firefighting and rescue operations.
  • To promote fire safety.
  • To encourage academy participants to return to their families and neighborhood to share their knowledge and experiences. This will help citizens to be more safety conscious and informed.
  • To provide an enjoyable, interactive atmosphere in which fire members and citizens can share information and concerns.

The deadline for applications is Jan, 19, 2016 at 5 p.m.
