By Amy Jeanroy

 

Firefighter I and II Academy sponsored by Calais Fire and the Maine Fire Service Institute was held Sunday, March 19 at the old Downeast Pizza building on North Street. 

After participants test out their practical skills and take their exams, they will be Pro Board Certified and able to get a job as a professional career firefighter anywhere in the country. 

Instructor Paula Frost, Chief of Perry Volunteer Fire Department, called the training a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”
