The Fire Department is excited to host its popular FREE Citizen's Fire Academy again this spring! 

It is an interactive program designed to familiarize citizens with the Fire Department personnel, operations and equipment.  It also provides a forum for the Department and citizens to share information and concerns.  The CFA is dedicated to increasing public awareness and creating a safer environment at home and in the workplace...and it is fun!

Students will learn:

  • History and overview of the Fire Department

  • Fire gear and emergency medical services
  • Incident Command
  • Mutual Aid
  • Auto Extrication
  • Self-contained breathing apparatus
  • Ladder truck operations
  • Fire prevention
  • Special Teams
  • Home fire safety

The curriculum will also offer an opportunity to become CPR Certified.  

Anyone who resides or owns a business in Lake Forest, Lake Bluff or the Rockland Fire Protection District may register.  Participants must be 18 years of age or 16 with parental consent.
