Where: Daisy Mountain Fire Station 141, 43814 N New River Road, New River, AZ 85087
Description: Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fill the shoes of a DMFD firefighter? Now’s the perfect time to find out. This class will allow you to experience firefighter training first hand, regardless of your level of fitness.* Learn about Daisy Mountain Fire District, how calls are dispatched, visit a fire station and see our trucks. Try our equipment, pull a hose, flow water, see our specialized equipment, get certified in CPR and First Aid, or just observe.* Participate in a drill and much more.
When you register, sign up for your choice of tracks. The “Observer Track” will give you an up close and personal look at what we do, how we do, and why we do. If you select the “Do It Track” we’ll dress you in turnouts (firefighting jacket, pants, boots, helmet and gloves), put an air pack on your back, and in a closely supervised setting, allow you to do those things.
Please note the date of the Optional Saturday (see above), and check your availability. You'll need to indicate whether you'll participate later in the registration process.
Target Audience: Community members of all ages, but must be at least 18 years old to enroll.
Cost: $25.00 per person, due at the start of the first night of class, payable with exact change or check made payable to Daisy Mountain Fire Department
