Curtis High Students Get Hands-On Experience With West Pierce Fire & Rescue Program (PHOTOS)

Each student did a ride-along with firefighters, putting on gear, climbing the 105-foot aerial ladder, receiving tips on job interview skills and learning about anatomy and trauma with pig hearts and lungs.

Check out these photos from West Pierce Fire & Rescue of its Senior Project Program.

Basically, they invited five Curtis High students to their station in Lakewood, where each student rode along with a firefighter. Throughout the day, they put on firefighter gear, climbed the department's 105-foot-tall aerial ladder and received tips on job interview and resume skills.

Oh yea, they also got their hands dirty learning about the anatomy and trauma with pig hearts and lungs.

Students in the Clover Park and University Place School Districts that will be seniors this fall and are interested in this program can contact their college or career counselor, or try Captain Michelle Johnson at 253-983-4553 or michelle.johnson@westpierce.org.
