Scott Safety Hosts National Junior Fire Academy

The National Volunteer Fire Council, in partnership with Scott Safety and Tyco International, hosted a National Junior Firefighter Academy on Scott Safety's campus on Saturday, November 16, 2013.

This is Scott's third year hosting such a key event.

"This program provides young people an excellent opportunity to share ideas, learn new drills and make connections with firefighters from other departments," said Greg Gatlin, manager of major accounts, Scott Safety.
