Citizens Fire Academy
Mooresville Fire & Rescue (MFR) has developed the Citizens Fire Academy to teach citizens about the many jobs MFR does on a daily basis and promote citizen interaction with the firefighters.
The Citizens Fire Academy is a dynamic, ten-week program designed to provide participants an inside view of the operations of MFR.
