If you haven't taken a fire safety course since childhood now is your chance to sign up for a review of some lifesaving basic fire safety skills. 

The Jackson Fire Department's Citizen's Fire Academy begins on January 25. 

During the week-long course, students will go through an interactive curriculum focused on fire prevention and education. 

"In 2015 we did have a reduction in fires in Jackson and we want to attribute that to education," says JFD Division Fie Chief Cleotha Sanders. 

The application to sign-up is January 19th at 5 p.m.

For more information call Division Fire Chief Cleotha Sanders at 601-960-1498.
