VIDEO: Treasure Valley residents interested in becoming fire fighters will no longer have to travel far to attend a fire academy. The College of Western Idaho (CWI) is now offering a "Fire Service Technology" certificate program that local fire department staff say will help fill important needs in the community. Staff from fire departments across Southwestern Idaho have been working together for the last several years to implement the semester-long, first-of-its-kind program in the Treasure Valley. More than 84 students were interested in applying for the program, and Monday and Tuesday, the firefighter hopefuls are being interviewed for the 20 available spots, according to CWI's Director of Public Safety Programming.
