The intent of the Academy is to train those interested in becoming full time, paid Firefighters, and to increase the opportunities and experience of the fire district personnel. Our goal is to create a nucleus of well-informed Firefighters who possess a greater insight into and understanding of Fire Department practices and services.
Instructors will include personnel from the Leesville Fire Department and Vernon Parish Fire District, each with expertise in specific fields. The course will cover a broad range of topics including an overview of the fire service, engine/truck company operations, emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, and fire prevention. This program also includes numerous hands-on activities and training drills.
