Those interested in learning more about the operation of the Asheboro Fire Department will soon be able to with the introduction of the department’s Ride-Along Program.
Lt. Jason Joines says the program, which has never before been offered by the Asheboro Fire Department (AFD), is open to any interested individuals, but that it’s aimed towards those who might be considering a career as a firefighter.
A copy of the ride-along program agreement form explains that AFD hopes to “encourage citizen involvement and to enhance the lines of communication between the Asheboro Fire Department and the community it serves.”
“With better understanding of our duties we can face the challenges, risks and rewards of the fire departments role in our community,” the form states. “The Asheboro Fire Department hopes to promote an environment of compassion, professionalism and dedication to the citizens and visitors it serves.”
