Calling all firefighters to be

Any Grade 11 or Grade 12 student in New Westminster with a dream of becoming a firefighter can get a taste of what it's all about with the city's fourth annual youth firefighter program July 2-6.

The city's fire and parks, culture and recreation departments give 12 students an opportunity to experience a condensed fire academy. Applicants go through an interview process with preference going to students in New Westminster.

"This is a great opportunity for youth who are interested in a career as a firefighter," said Sandon Fraser, the city's youth services coordinator in a press release. "They'll get to start the summer off in an exciting and challenging environment they will never forget."

More information, including applications and pictures from previous programs, is available at www.newwestyouth.ca.
