2023 Bent Tree Basic Firefighter Program – Coming Soon!

The 2023 Bent Tree Basic Firefighter program will begin May 1st. Classes thereafter will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-10:00 PM, as well as every other Saturday from 8:00AM-5:00PM. The class will last approximately two months with the final day being June 28th. Our skilled instructors will provide participants with over 96 hours of firefighter training, including hazardous materials, CPR / First Aid, and live fire training.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be fully certified to perform basic firefighting operations and serve the community during a variety of emergency situations. Graduates will receive a Bent Tree Fire Rescue unit number and function as a team with fellow Bent Tree firefighters during training exercises and other major incidents.

If you have ever dreamt of becoming a firefighter, wanted to get involved in the profession, or would like to become officially employed with our team as a firefighter, this is the time to make it happen. If you would like more information about this tremendous opportunity to serve the community and achieve something very special, please email Fire Chief Trevor Beavers at or Assistant Chief John Hawkins at

Hello!  My name is Willie.  As you can see I am a beautiful tuxedo boy who loves petting.  I do have FIV but I can not spread it easily to other kitties.  I would have to bite them deeply and I am not a biter.  I am friends with three other kitties in a special shelter area and we never fight.  I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, and ready to meet my new family.  I must be an inside kitty only.

Please call LuAnn at 678-414-1047 to meet me.
The shelter open house is the last Sunday in April from 1-4 pm. Come see me and all the other kitties. (Behind the Cottage )
