In conjunction with our Parks and Recreation Department, the Christiansburg Fire Department hosts a Teen Fire Academy each summer. High school students from the area shadow the Christiansburg Fire Department. Activities include crawling through an obstacle course, leveraging open a locked door, simulating a rope rescue, racing to put on gear, and more. Teens experience a small portion of the training our firefighters learn to keep Christiansburg safe.
Teen Fire Academy was awarded Best New Program by the Virginia Recreation and Parks Society in 2019.
