Secondary Fire Academy

Check back in Spring 2022 for Secondary Fire Academy applications for the 2022-23 school year.

Are you currently a Grade 11 student residing and attending school in Abbotsford? Do you know someone who is?

Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service has partnered with Abbotsford School District to design a program that gives students an up close look into the daily work life of a career or paid on-call firefighter. Students will learn about and practice the duties of a firefighter through physical training, teamwork and mechanical aptitude. Secondary Fire Academy (SFA) is a year-long commitment every Wednesday evening from 6:00-9:30pm, September to June. Successful candidates will become cadets and train alongside Paid On-Call Fire Fighters at an Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) station in the City of Abbotsford.
