Does your middle schooler want to learn what it takes to be a Frisco Firefighter? The Frisco Fire Department offers Jr. Citizen’s Fire Academy (CFA), which is open to students who live in Frisco and/or attend Frisco ISD schools and is FREE of charge. The class is designed for students who are currently in the 6th, 7th or 8th grades.

The academy is one week long and will take place at Central Fire Station/Safety Town, 8601 Gary Burns Dr. in Frisco. The hours are: 

  • 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday
  • 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday

A graduation ceremony, which parents are invited to attend, will be at 12 p.m. on Friday. 

Class attendees enjoy fun drills and challenges that simulate what a real firefighter would do in the course of a day’s work. Students are actively engaged as part of a ’company’ and participate in educational activities throughout the day. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends from across Frisco and learn about the fire service. 

Class attendees will receive a complimentary shirt and water bottle.
