Spring 2019 Citizens Fire Academy Graduation
The Wilmington Fire Department will be wrapping up its spring edition of the Citizen’s Fire Academy with Graduation Night on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019, at 6 pm. Graduation takes place at Wilmington Fire Station #3 located at 114 Cinema Drive. Over the course of the last eight weeks these 15 members of the community were exposed to all different aspects of the Wilmington Fire Department, from what happens when you call 911 at the NHC 911 Center to fire operations and tactical rescue. The Citizen’s Fire Academy has been a tremendous asset to the Fire Department in regards to building good relationships and strong community advocates. Since the program’s inception, approximately two hundred and thirty members of the community have graduated and joined the Wilmington Fire Department’s extended family.
