Sign-ups are now being accepted for the first Citizens Fire Academy class offered by McMinnville Fire Department. The new program will give local citizens an inside look into the life of a firefighter.“This is the first one of its kind for this department,” said McMinnville Fire Chief Randy Walker. “The classes will offer a glimpse into what firefighters really do.”The department is looking to abolish a misconception about the daily functions within the department.
