Citizens Fire Academy

Citizens Fire Academy (CFA) is an eight-week program (10 classes) that gives residents an opportunity to learn about about Allen Fire Department's structure and operations. CFA takes place each spring.

Participants must be at least age 18 and live or work in Allen. Spring 2022 schedule and details will be announced soon!

What you'll experience:


  • Demonstrations of emergency operations
  • Fire and life safety training
  • Riding along with on-duty firefighters on emergency calls
While the CFA program offers in-depth understanding of the department, the program is not to be confused with a fire service training academy for future career firefighters.
