Teens in Monroe can soon train to be a firefighter now that the Louisiana Fire and Emergency Training Academy (FETA) and the High School Training Committee have approved the Monroe Fire Department’s application to offer training to high school students.

The MFD is partnering with the Monroe City School System and the State Fire Marshal’s Office to offer the High School Firefighter Program. This program will offer firefighter training and credentialing to high school students in the Monroe City School System.
