Getting A Jump Start On A Career In Public Safety
More and more people are searching for fewer jobs during this recession, which means getting a jump start on your career is more important than ever.
But imagine not only knowing what you want to do in middle school but getting some on the job training to help you prepare for your future.
The city of Gainesville's Junior Fire Academy provides such an opportunity through their annual program.
The Academy exposes middle school aged kids to a career in service to their community.
Each day participants interact with firefighters from stations across the city and go through fire hose, ladder, extinguisher and first aid training.
After the week long academy is completed, the middle schoolers are eligible for graduation and can enroll in the high school program for advanced training.
The program runs from June 14th through the 18th, but applications are due Friday and can be found at www.gfr.org or by stopping by the fire administration building at 1025 NE 13th Street in Gainesville.
