CCFR Crews Adopt Families in Need

Holiday Gifts

To celebrate the season of giving, the crews at Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) have come together to adopt area families in need.

CCFR firefighter Alan Cross, director of the Central County Community Outreach Program, worked with local elementary schools to identify six local families; each family was paired with one of the district’s six stations so that crews could gather gifts and other supplies.

“CCFR is proud to serve our community in any way we can,” Assistant Fire Chief Steve Brown says. “We hope that we can make the holidays a little brighter for some of our St. Peters families.”

The money being used to assist these families was raised by firefighters at fundraising events throughout the year and provided by the Central County Community Outreach Program.

This program was founded by a group of CCFR firefighters who realized that many families needed help after house fires and other emergency situations. This 501(c)3 non-profit program is funded through donations and provides assistance to families in need, conducts community education and outreach efforts and supports local community organizations.The members of the Community Outreach program organize a variety of community events such as regular movie nights at the fire stations, and the Gifts for Kids toy drive.

Citizen Fire Academy, Fall 2015

Citizen Fire Academy Puts Residents in the Hot Seat

REGISTRATION FOR THE FALL 2015 SESSION IS NOW OPEN. EMAIL BRIAN BEASLEY OR CALL 636.970.9700X403 OR FOR AN APPLICATION.

Classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m., at CCFR Fire Station 3, 511 Willott Rd. This is an eight-week course.

When many people think of firefighting they think of a Hollywood movie scene. Firefighters rush into a building where they see a bright room full of flames while they quickly rescue those in danger. Now it’s time to learn what it’s really like.


The goal of the Citizen Fire Academy is to provide the community a hands-on understanding of what it takes to be a CCFR firefighter. Participants are given a chance to interact with the firefighters, learn about the fire service, and receive hands-on experience with some of the tasks and tools used to fight fires and save lives.

The CCFR Citizen Fire Academy provides community members with the education and experience to safely understand the operations and functions of the fire department.

Academy Sessions

Academy participants attend classroom lecture sessions and practical hands-on events where they experience the inside world of the fire service. The safety of the participants is of the utmost importance and every step is monitored by fire department instructors.

Safety

Because firefighting is an inherently dangerous job, no participants will be expected to perform any task they do not wish, nor will they participate in any real emergency situations.

Requirements

  • Be a community-minded resident of CCFR
  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Complete the application process
  • Proof of current health insurance
  • Signed waiver release form

Registration

Schedule

The Citizen Fire Academy meets one evening a week for eight weeks from 6-9 p.m.

Cost

There is a $25 administration fee to enroll.
