It's an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to learn more about what it is like to be a firefighter.
The Plover Fire Department has announced that it will offer a Citizens Fire Academy. They are not just talking about letting people slide down the firefighting pole. Instead, they want to address a wide range of topics including how to operate equipment, respond to fire calls, and how to aid in emergency situations. The fire department says that they want to offer the program so that residents can see all the fire department does for them.
"You get your property tax and you pay your property tax. You want to know where your money is going towards. This is one way that you are going to be able to learn what the money that you pay into the village is used for." said academy organizer Adam King.
The program will begin in mid April and run for six weeks. Its open to residents of Plover, Whiting, and Buena Vista. Applications for the academy will be due April 1st.
