After two years off due to the pandemic, we are bringing back the What's Next Expo. The purpose of the expo is to allow fire cadets, explorers, junior firefighters, and high school students who are in fire/emergency services programs to explore future educational and work opportunities. Parents are also welcome to attend and meet the program representatives. Members from various fire departments that have scholarships or student firefighter positions will also be at the expo.
This year's expo is Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the City of Seattle Joint Training Facility (JTF). I have invited all the fire science programs from Wahington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska to come. Fire departments that have scholarship or student firefighter positions will also be there.
Parking will be available on the EVIP pad next to the classroom building. The expo will be in Classrooms 1 and 2 (follow the signs). Please call me with any questions.
