Residents wanting to know more about the internal operations of the Henry County Fire Department, will soon be able to take part in the “Citizens’ Fire Academy.”

The ten-week program increases awareness, and seeks to generate a more-informed community. The academy will begin on March 8, and continue until May 10. The deadline for submitting an application is Feb. 24, at 5 p.m.
