Citizens Fire Academy


The Citizens Fire Academy is a ten week program that educates the participants about the various functions and services the Mesquite Fire Department provides to the community.  Participants will gain an understanding of these functions, how the fire department is organized to provide these services, and why we do what we do. The Citizen's Fire Academy does not train citizens to become firefighters. Our intent is to provide information, through classroom instruction and hands on training, of the duties and responsibilities of the fire department. The participants will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the varied tasks required to accomplish this mission. We sincerely hope this experience will enhance your knowledge of the Mesquite Fire Department and give you insight into why we value our department as one of the best in the State of Texas.
