Unified Fire Authority will be choosing 5-7 high school students for an internship during the spring semester of 2016. Students chosen will get to see what it's like be a firefighter/EMT first hand. It requires 8-10 hours a week with the same fire crew in one of 29 fire stations. Students who are interested should contact Sonja Richardson in the Career Center for an application. The deadline to submit applications is January 15th @2:30pm, and internships will be awarded January 20th. Good luck!
