Is It Ever Too Early?
"Junior Fire Academy
From Montebello Today,
With family and friends in
attendance, and after a three week rigorous program, the young people of the
Junior Fire Academy celebrated their graduation last month [during the
summer, 2009]. The program teaches young people fire safety and also
has them participate in a variety of firefighting events. The Junior
Fire Academy is hosted by the Montebello Fire Department and has been
coordinated by Fire Engineer Henry Velasquez for the past seven years.
The participants received their certificates of completion at the graduation
exercise, where Fire Chief James Duncan congratulated each candidate.
