Deadline approaching for Valdosta's Citizens Fire Academy registration

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta firefighters want to teach the people they serve about their jobs.

The deadline to sign up for Valdosta's Citizens Fire Academy is Friday at 5. The six-week course teaches participants about fire and life safety and gives them a better idea of how the fire department operates.

Valdosta's fire chief is looking forward to a big turnout. "The more we feel we can get the citizens and the community involved and understanding of how we operate and the services we provide, the more we can send the message that we're a community department" said Valdosta fire chief Freddie Broome.

Classes run from September 9th to October 28th. For more information about the program, or to register, visit www.valdostacity.com.
