The St. Cloud Fire Department is looking for teens between the ages of 14 and 20 who want to learn more about firefighting.

The program meets for three hours on the first and third Tuesday of each month starting Tuesday, January 7th and continues through June.

The program will teach you all aspects of firefighting including how to handle a fire hose, raise ladders and perform search and rescue missions.
