Started in 1996, the MCFD bunk-in program gives students from area colleges the unique experience of living in a fire station, working duty shifts, and responding to alarms while attending school. Our current students attend Onondaga Community College for Fire Protection Technology.

On Sunday August 13th, our nine bunk-ins moved in to their respective stations and attended an orientation session at Station 2 with their families. They then spent the entire week training and becoming familiar with MCFD operations. The week-long training included: SCBA, engine company operations, ladders, search and rescue and RIT operations. At the end of the week all bunk-ins participated in live fire evolutions at the Clay tower with bunk-in students from the North Syracuse Fire Department

Welcome to the MCFD boys, and congratulations to all the bunk-in students on completing the intensive bunk-in training week. Good luck this semester and stay safe!
