Summerville Fire and Rescue is now accepting applications for their annual citizens fire academy. It’s a seven-week program aimed to give people a better understanding of what firefighters do. The Summerville Citizens Fire Academy is open to those 21 and older who live in the town. Applications will be accepted up until September 14th and the program is set to start October 18th. The Summerville Citizens Fire Academy made its first debut about four years ago. Fire Chief Richard Waring says it’s about educating their neighbors on what services they do and sometimes don’t provide. They’ll cover everything from the cost of doing businesses to the types of incidents they respond to. Waring says it’s important for the community to know where their tax dollars are going.
