Loveland, Ohio. – The Loveland Symmes Fire Department (LSFD) is looking for City of Loveland and Symmes Township community members to attend their Citizens Fire Academy, starting Wednesday evening, July 31. 
The Citizens Fire Academy offers adult citizens from our community the opportunity to learn about their fire department. As an academy participant, you will get an introduction to the fire department and learn how firefighters and paramedics do their jobs.

Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings from 7 PM to approximately 9 PM starting July 31 with graduation Monday, September 9th.

The LSFD Citizens Fire Academy has a great history of success that we are very proud of. Past participants reported that they truly enjoyed the training and developed a much better understanding of the level of training and dedication firefighters need to perform their tasks. One participant said that she expected that most of the training would be in the classroom and was surprised that it was hands-on education as well.

“Our Citizens Fire Academy is a fun and easy way to see demonstrations and participate in hands-on training at your own comfort level. You will meet some of our firefighters and have the opportunity to handle some of our equipment” said LSFD Chief Otto Huber. Examples include hose and ladder operations, the use of firefighting equipment, and the ability to see the vehicles and other equipment up close. Huber said, “Naturally this is done in a safe and supervised level and is for people of any ability whatsoever-everyone is welcome.”
