Citizens Fire Academy

Citizens Fire Academy Sign-ups will open in 2024.


The academy will host participants who live in the City of Celina or own a business in Celina. The Citizen’s Fire Academy will provide an immense amount of information resulting in the class participant’s thorough understanding of the life of a firefighter. Informative presentations will include SCBA, Electricity Demonstration, Suppression roles, and Fire Marshal Responsibilities.  

To be eligible for the Academy, participants must be at least 18 years of age and either live or work in the City of Celina. A criminal background is completed on each applicant.

Completion of the Academy provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the Celina Fire Department although not a formal fire service training academy.

 Duration: 10 Weeks (classes every week to include one Saturday) 

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of “hands on” activities that our Fire Department does on a daily basis to include:

  • Forcible Entry
  • Nozzle Operations
  • Vehicle Extrication
  • CPR Certification 
  • Aerial Ladder Climb
  • Air Transportation (Helicopter) 
  • Fire ground evolutions
