FORT PIERRE, S.D. — For those interested in fighting fires, registration is open for 2020 South Dakota Wildland Fire Academy at Fort Pierre.

Local fire personnel say the training benefits local communities.

“We really are a core value as far as an american value. We are like any other volunteer service that exists throughout the world where there is a shortage of volunteers as people find other pursuits. This is an excellent opportunity for people to develop a life skill that they can use, not only in their personal lives, but in their professional lives. And it is a great way for people to give back or serve their community.” said Jerome Harvey, Pennington County Fire Administrator.
