The Biloxi Fire Department is taking applications for its Fire Academy for Kids on June 6-10.

The free, five-day program is for children ages 7 to 12 and is held at Fire Station No. 1, in the Lopez Quave Public Safety Center, 170 Porter Ave., and at the nearby West End Hose Company No. 3 Fire Museum, 1046 Howard Ave.

The academy will be from 8 a.m. to noon and is open to the first 40 registrants. Registration deadline is 4 p.m. Friday.

Campers will learn fire safety and first aid and will get to get close to the firefighters, the equipment they use and the jobs they perform. Snacks and a beverage will be provided to the children each day.
