Fire Academy for Kids

The Biloxi Fire Department holds a Fire Academy for Kids each summer.  The academy is a free, five-day participatory camp for children ages 7 to 12 that takes place at Fire Station No. 1 on Porter Avenue, and at the nearby West End Hose Company No. 3 Fire Museum, 1046 Howard Ave. The beginners and advanced camps are limited to 40 participants. 

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