Calling all firefighters to be
Any Grade 11 or Grade 12 student in New Westminster with a dream of becoming a firefighter can get a taste of what it's all about with the city's fourth annual youth firefighter program July 2-6.
The city's fire and parks, culture and recreation departments give 12 students an opportunity to experience a condensed fire academy. Applicants go through an interview process with preference going to students in New Westminster.
"This is a great opportunity for youth who are interested in a career as a firefighter," said Sandon Fraser, the city's youth services coordinator in a press release. "They'll get to start the summer off in an exciting and challenging environment they will never forget."
