Students learn about the life of a firefighter during Fire Academy Field Day

About a dozen area high school students got to take a peek into the life of a firefighter during Victoria College’s Fire Academy Field Day on Thursday. Students visited Victoria Fire Department Station 4 on Salem Road where they were given a tour and shown firefighting equipment. Students John Pena, left, of Calhoun High School, and Matthew Lara of Victoria East High School, try on firefighter bunker gear with help from firefighter Gilbert Mendoza, at right. The students watched a recruitment video by the City of Victoria and were briefed on Victoria College Fire Academy entry requirements.
