The Wharton Volunteer Fire Department started a Junior Fire Academy Challenge last year. The Sivells Wharton Tigers FUTP 60 After School Team took on the challenge on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016. Each team member was put through the course that a fire fighter may face when battling a fire. The students had to run through obstacles, carry the water hose, knock down a door, carry a body, and put out a fire. Each student learned very quickly what good shape a fire fighter must be in on a daily basis. The students had a great time!
