Sioux City Fire Rescue and the local Boys and Girls Club are partnering in a new program for club high school age students.
Fire Chief Tom Everett says ten club members are taking part in the first Junior Fire Academy:
OC………medical technician. :13
Participating students will meet the next ten Mondays and do many of the things that a firefighter does each day:
OC…….getting wet. :23
Boys & Girls Club Director Eldon Bensen says it’s a great opportunity for their high school age members:
OC…………..very interesting. :20
Chief Everett’s wife Tracy is also funding a scholarship for one of the students who wishes to begin a career as a firefighter or an E-M-T.
