Biloxi Fire opens registration for kids academy

The Biloxi Fire Department is now taking applications for youngsters to attend its hugely popular educational fire camp.

Registration for the 2024 Fire Academy for Kids is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Fire Department Station No. 1 in the Lopez Quave Public Safety Center, 170 Porter Ave., and is available to the first 40 registrants in each os the camps.   

The academy – a free, five-day participatory camp for children ages 7 to 12 – will take place at Fire Station No. 1, and at the nearby West End Hose Company No. 3 Fire Museum, 1046 Howard Ave from Monday, June 10 through Friday, June 14, and Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 21. Both sessions will take place from 8 a.m. to noon. The deadline to submit an application is May 10 by 4 p.m.

The sessions allow campers to learn life-safety skills in fire safety and first-aid through classroom activities, hands-on training, and homework. They also are introduced up close and personal to firefighters, the equipment they use, and the jobs they perform. Each day, snacks and a beverage will be provided to the children.
