Pittsburg Fire Department hosts “Fire Science Open House”

The Pittsburg Fire Department hosted an open house for high school kids from across Southeast Kansas, to explore how that program could work for kids in Cherokee and Crawford counties, and hopefully reverse a growing trend.

“It’s a regional thing where the volunteer numbers are down for fire departments, the career numbers are down, and so it’s important that we strike the interest on this younger generation,” says Mike Simons, Chief, Pittsburg Fire Department.

The program would be open to high school juniors and seniors, and would have the students coming to the Pittsburg Fire Department for part of the day to learn.
