Fire Fighting Class

A new semester is about to begin at Albemarle High School. Along with this, comes new opportunities for students.  AHS will now provide students with a Firefighter class. Fire Chief Shawn Oke said, “ The advantages of the program would be once the students enrolled in the program and graduate, they will have almost everything they need to be a NC Certified Firefighter; they would only need two additional classes dealing with live fires. “  “Another advantage would be the city would have young, local, well-qualified firefighters to help the city fire department”, he said. Oke said, “it would also be an advantage to the county volunteer departments as well.” The firefighter program will be the first Stanly County Public Safety program
