Upshur County Citizens Fire Academy Will Kick Off in Rock Cave

Posted: Updated:

Upshur County residents will have another chance to get an inside look at their local fire department this week.

The fourth class of the Upshur County Citizens Fire Academy will kick off in Rock Cave tomorrow night.

The program offers everyday people a chance to learn more about all the different skills fire departments need to have to operate.

     Banks District VFD Chief Gary Bonnett said there's a lot more to operating a fire department than meets the eye.

"It gives them a firsthand knowledge of what we do, an insight of what we do.  It gives them an idea of what some of the stuff costs that we use to operate with."

Bonnett said this year's class will be the largest to date.
