FIREFIGHTER FOR A DAY

(Weston, FL) – Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Lt. Walter Knapp helps 17-year-old Diego Alvarez adjust the air tank as he gears up to be a firefighter for the day at Weston Fire Station #81 on Wednesday, January 30th. About 20 high school students participate in the city-sponsored Weston University Program that began in 2002. The program is a seven month-long program that provides the students an opportunity to learn about state and local government; in particular, Weston’s municipal government, through a combination of classroom and real-world experiences from the people who work there. As part of the day-long excursion, the group also went to BSO headquarters and toured the 9-1-1 communications center and the Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue logistics facility.
