Fort Worth ISD Students Receive Instruction in Firefighting Skills


Fort Worth ISD students enrolled in the Gold Seal Public Service Program at Eastern Hills High School are getting some hands-on training from Fort Worth firefighters. 

Fort Worth Fire Department representatives now come into the Eastern Hills classrooms once a month – and Eastern Hills students go to the Fire Academy at the Bob Bolen Safety Complex on Felix Street –also once a month – to receive training. 

These juniors and seniors are learning firefighting skills while simultaneously completing coursework that allows them to sit for their First Responder and EMT certifications. 

The Gold Seal Public Service Program at Eastern Hills HS provides students exciting, hands-on learning focused on law enforcement, legal services, EMT training.  The program not only partners with the Fort Worth Fire Department, but with MedStar, Acadian Ambulance, and Texas Health Resources, as well. 

This video captures the students’ excitement and dedication.
