The Lake Cities Fire Department (LCFD) has partnered with the Lake Dallas Independent School District (LDISD) and North Central Texas College (NCTC) to offer an elite group of students a once in a lifetime opportunity. Sixteen juniors kicked off the school year in a classroom with officials from LDISD, LCFD, and NCTC for the first ever Lake Dallas High School Fire Academy.

The two-year program allows students to earn dual credit and graduate high school with 33 college credits. Upon completion of the course, candidates are eligible to sit for the Texas Fire Commission and National Registry Emergency Medical Technician certifications.

“The goal of this program is to provide a unique experience to high school students in a professional setting that teaches ownership, responsibility, teamwork, and expectations of conduct,” stated Deputy Chief Michael Ross. “We are shaping future leaders to take pride in what they do and appreciate the tradition and culture of the fire service, while giving them the resources and education to enter the workforce.”

The Fire Academy is presented to all outgoing sophomores. Those interested will go through an application and selection process at the end of the year, and will complete all requirements for admittance over the summer.
