Clay Fire to hold 8-month-long fire academy

Posted:

Clay Fire Territory is looking for new recruits.  They will be holding an eight month long academy to certify recruits as Firefighters and EMT's.  Firefighters at Clay Fire begin their service as a part-time Firefighter and then have an opportunity to apply for full-time positions with Clay as they become available.

Clay Fire Territory Chief John Vance says this is an opportunity for anyone who ever wanted to be a Firefighter, or help their community on a part time basses.  "All of the services that Clay Fire provides, we train our recruits for before they hit the streets," Vance said, "the day they graduate from the eight month long recruiting academy, they are ready to go out and provide excellent service to our people."

"The firefighters are able to go in there, extinguish the fire and encounter real life heat, real life smoke and it's as close as you can get without actually having an actual house or structure on fire," said Vance.

Requirements to apply:

  • Be at least 18 yrs of age.
  • Reside within 5 miles of Clay, German or Harris Civil Townships, St Joseph County, IN.
  • Have a high school diploma or GED.
  • Have a valid drivers' license.
  • In order to be accepted to the Clay Fire Academy all applicants must be able to successfully pass a physical ability test, written examination and background check.

Stop by the administrative offices at 18355 Auten Road in South Bend for an application.  For more information, visit the Clay Fire web site or call (574) 272-2144.
