About the Academy Designed for adults to learn more about how Plano Fire-Rescue is organized and operates, the Citizens Fire Academy (CFA) is open to persons 18 and older who either live or work in the City of Plano. The 10-week class meets 1 night a week at the Fire Administration Building on Avenue K. Each night, CFA participants learn about a different aspect of Plano-Fire Rescue, ranging from emergency medical services, to hiring and training firefighters, to special rescue operations. During the 10 weeks of the class, CFA participants also spend time at fire stations and riding on the engines to emergency calls. This is not a certification course. For more information, contact the Community Outreach and Education Office at 972-941-7421.
