Citizens Fire Academy is fun and informative for the citizens working or living in the City of San Marcos to see what it’s like to live and train as a firefighter. This free, fun academy is to help inform participants on the way San Marcos Fire Department operates and the ultimate goal is to learn fire safety. There is no cost to attend this fun class. Space is limited as there are only 15 seats available.
Citizens Fire Academy (CFA) runs every Monday evening and a few Saturdays at Fire Station #5, 100 Carlson Circle from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (excluding holidays), for twelve weeks from mid-August to graduation night in early November.
I understand that Citizens Fire Academy is not a TCFP approved Fire Academy. The CFA is a fun, informative opportunity that allows me to experience what it's like being a firefighter.
