The Regina District Industry Education Council is pleased to provide an opportunity for interested Grade 10-12 students to attend a Career Spotlight at the Regina Fire & Protective Services.
The students will spend the day at the fire department's Education & Training Centre at 1205 Ross Avenue. Members will provide the students with an overview of the services offered by the fire department, the fire-related risks which exist within the community, and an interactive activity showing the students how they can mitigate this risk within their own lives. Members will also explain the firefighting training and hiring process and describe the knowledge and skills required when applying to a fire college. They will provide an overview of the department's hiring process once a candidate has graduated from a fire college, including the required qualifications, testing process, fitness assessment, job-related performance tests and interviews.
Also, the students will be outfitted with personal protective equipment and led through hands-on career-related evolutions on the Training Grounds. They day will end with a tour of various fire department facilities.
Students will meet at Campus Regina Public (Cochrane High School) at 1069-14th Avenue East in Regina. They will be bussed to the Regina Fire & Protective Services Education & Training Centre. They must arrive 10 minutes prior to the bus leaving.
