2019 FCFCA Junior Firefighter Academy


3075 Molly Pitcher Highway
Chambersburg, PA 17202


Throughout the week-long academy held at the Franklin County Public Safety Training Center, fire department junior members ranging from ages 14 to 17 are provided training in various aspects of the fire service, given tours of several different county fire departments, and the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. At the National Fire Academy, Cadets and staff are given the opportunity to pay respects at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial and the 9/11 Memorial, along with touring various educational facilities. The Academy offers several guest speakers including accomplished fire service leaders, elected officials, media representatives and other fire service professionals from surrounding counties and the Washington, D.C. Metro Area. Although the focus remains on fire service training, we have found the most important aspects of the academy come from life lessons in responsibility, discipline, accountability, character, integrity, teamwork, and leadership.
