Love the action-packed show Chicago Fire? Flashing lights, loud sirens and the adrenaline rush - this is what some days look like for real firefighters and paramedics. They are the first to arrive at the scene of an emergency and more often than not, it’s very dangerous. Take a tour of a fire academy training facility, learn basic firefighter skills and try on protective gear. You don’t want to miss this, especially if you’re drawn to intense careers like emergency services. Check it out with us!

*For this program students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location. They will be going to Moraine Valley Community College, located at 9000 College Parkway in Palos Hills. Must have "Permission to Transport" indicated on Student Membership Application.
