Your kids can be firefighters for a day at the Spokane Fire Department’s Junior Fire Academy

The Spokane Fire Department is hosting their annual Kids Junior Fire Academy in River Park Square on Saturday. .

Kids of all ages will have the opportunity to learn alongside local firefighters and see if they have what it takes to one day become one.

The free event will have a junior combat course where kids will be able to spray a fire hose, perform a “rescue,” race to put on their uniforms and “knock down” a door. They are all real tasks that firefighters do during their training. Firefighters will work alongside the kids as they complete each task.

When families arrive, kids will receive a passport to stop at each station. Mobius Children’s Museum will provide a craft project and booths will be set up to teach both parents and kids about CPR, car seat safety and poison control. When each activity is stamped, kids will have the chance to enjoy free pizza, grilled cheese or ice cream.

The event will take place at River Park Square, 808 West Main Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
