KANNAPOLIS — A number of city of Kannapolis residents have graduated from the Citizens Fire Academy. The academy concentrates on the services and functions of the Kannapolis Fire Department and provides citizens with a better understanding of what it takes to be a firefighter.

Citizens participating in the free ten-week fire academy toured fire stations, learned the history of fire service, fire prevention, education and investigation, emergency driving, rescue operations and more.
