Love the 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. Hear first-hand about the required physical training, what day-to-day duties include, the closeness of the firefighter/paramedic family, and how they work together. Also, learn about the mental strength it takes to continue in these courageous careers. Bonus: explore the inside of an emergency response vehicle these professionals use to save lives.

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
