Persons interested in becoming volunteer firefighters for one of Polk County's Volunteer Fire Departments are encouraged to attend a two night class, Introduction To Fire Protection, Thursday and Friday night, January 16th and 17th.
James Hale at the Polk County Office of Emergency Management said that the class would last three or three and a half hours each night, start at 6:00 p.m., and be held at Mena Fire Station #1 on De Queen Street.
This is one of three courses new firefighters will need to complete.
There is no cost to attend the class. Volunteer firefighters need to be at least 18 years of age.
