Cold Spring Fire Company Junior Firefighter Academy Celebrates 15 Years with Parade

On Monday, July 24, 2017, the Cold Spring Fire Company reached another milestone by hosting its 15th Junior Firefighter Academy. Open to 55 local children, the week-long camp allows children a glimpse into what it’s like to be a firefighter. They receive instruction on the history of the fire service, fire prevention, the science of firefighting, CPR and first aid, the importance of physical training and teamwork among other things. The program, co-sponsored by Philipstown Recreation and run by the Cold Spring Fire Company, is free to all who attend, thanks to generous donations from the community.

To commemorate the Academy’s 15th anniversary, graduates of this year’s academy marched in a parade down Main Street on Friday, July 28, 2017. The parade, which started at 5:10 p.m., drew a supportive crowd from the community. After the parade the fire department hosted a large barbecue for  the graduates and their parents.
