Citizens Fire Academy

Mooresville Fire-Rescue (MFR) has developed the Citizens Fire Academy to teach citizens about the many jobs MFR does on a daily basis and promote citizen interaction with the firefighters.

The Citizens Fire Academy is a dynamic,10 week program designed to provide participants an inside view of the operations of MFR. Curriculum includes live demonstrations, classroom learning, and hands-on experiences - all of which are designed to give the participant a true feel for MFR. The entire program is free and open to anyone 18 years of age or older who lives or works in the Town of Mooresville or Iredell County.

The session begins in March each year and continues weekly for approximately 10 weeks. Classes will be held at Mooresville Fire Stations. Citizens Fire Academy Application is available online.
