Students ages 11-15 have the opportunity to do something exciting and educational for Spring Break. The Durham Fire Department and the City of Durham’s Parks and Recreation Department team up annually to present The Jr. Fire Marshal program.
The program is offered during the Durham Public School spring break and allows participants to explore different careers in the fire service industry and other careers within the City of Durham while learning to become safety ambassadors for the community.
During the four-day period, participants will learn about fire safety, character building, and personal development through hands-on activities, field trips and team building exercises.
The 2015 program theme is “Service to Community”
This year’s program begins Monday, March 30 – Thursday, April 2 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Pick-up and drop off each day will take place at Lyon Park Recreation Center.
