Fire Academy

The MCC fire academy is an evenings and weekend style academy that typically meets three nights a week from 6:00 pm -10:00 pm and two Saturdays a month from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. The academy includes one Wednesday night a month for scenario-based training. This training incorporates the practical skills learned during the certification classes into realistic training evolutions.
