FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Fire Department is inviting Forsyth County youth interested in learning what it takes to be a firefighter to sign up for a free, weeklong summer camp program.

The Junior Fire Academy, which is for rising seventh- and eighth-graders, will be held July 28 through Aug. 1.

In addition to the weeklong program, the fire department is also welcoming returning candidates who have participated in a previous camp with the department to take part in a special two-day Junior Fire Academy on July 22 and 23.

Those attending the Junior Fire Academy will have the opportunity to experience the different aspects of being a career firefighter.

Both programs are free of charge.

The Junior Fire Academy programs for both new and returning candidates will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Forsyth County Fire Department headquarters at the Forsyth County Public Safety Complex, 3520 Settingdown Road in Cumming.

Those interested in attending either Junior Fire Academy must submit a completed application by May 16.

The application is available on the department’s page on the Forsyth County website at www.forsythco.com.

Space for the programs is limited.
