Guam - The Guam Community College has 30 training slots open for those wanting to become firefighters. The training is provided through the Department of Public Health and Social Services Community Services Block Grant. The $70,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds starts the Fire Academy classes at GCC.

Public Health Program Coordinator Elizabeth Ignacio says applicants must meet federal income requirements and be a U.S. citizen or legal resident alien.  Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says the training hopes to help the understaffed agency. He adds that graduates will not only qualify to work for GFD, but also the airport rescue and firefighting or the federal fire department.

Interested applicants can contact GCC's Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 735-5574 for more information.
