Program update for 2021: Allen Fire Department will not host a Citizens Fire Academy in 2021. Continue checking this page for the latest updates!
Citizens Fire Academy is an eight-week program (10 classes) that gives residents an opportunity to learn more about how the Allen Fire Department operates and is organized. The Academy takes place each spring.
Demonstrations of emergency operations
Fire and life safety training
Riding along with on-duty firefighters on emergency calls
Completion of the Citizens Fire Academy provides an in-depth understanding of the department, but is not to be confused with a fire service training academy for future career firefighters.
