The Peoria Fire Department is giving some residents the chance to experience what it’s like to work as a firefighter.
On Monday, June 11, the fire department is hosting “Epic Firefighter” day at Peoria Fire Central. 20 residents of EPIC facility will arrive at the station and will be allowed to wear fire gear, simulate a search and rescue, drag a hose line and put out a simulated fire.
There will be two groups of ten, where the first group will be from 9:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and the second group will be from noon to 1:45 p.m. The groups will also be able to share a meal with Peoria Firefighters.
