The Liberty County College and Career Academy is now offering a chance for 18-year-old students get a head start on possible firefighting careers.

The LCCA is working with the Liberty County School System, Savannah Technical College, local fire departments, the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce and the Liberty County Board of Commissioners to offer the first level of training necessary to become a firefighter.

The Walthourville Fire Department was on hand Thursday to help celebrate the new program, and nine students are taking the classes to earn Firefighter 1 status before graduating from high school.
