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. Monday, June 12 through Friday, June 16 from 8 a.m. to noon.

The sessions allow campers to learn life-safety skills in fire safety and first aid through classroom activities, hands-on training and homework. They are also 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.
