VIDEO: From learning about hazardous materials and how to extinguish a fire, more than 20 students got their hand at seeing what firefighters in Greensboro do daily. "I learned about every aspect of the fire department, I even learned about services I didn't even know they had to offer," said Ramona Daniels, a Greensboro Fire Citizen Academy Member. "There's a lot of stuff that the firefighters do every single day to make our city safe," said Jeannette Davidson-Mayer, a Greensboro Fire Citizen Academy Member. The main goal of this academy is to create public advocates who educate and protect the community and it teaches vital skills. "You learn a lot, you learn a lot and by example, if I have an emergency or I have to call 911, I know how it works, how I can help, and how I can help them," said Juan Carrion, a Greensboro Fire Citizen Academy Member.
