Black Fire Brigade
Lieutenant Quention Curtis always knew he wanted to be a firefighter, but when he saw firsthand the crime that was plaguing his community, he decided it was time to make a change. So he started the Black Fire Brigade, a community organization that provides free EMT classes to teens to teach them how to save lives and to get them started on a career path as firefighters. In June, the brigade opened a brand new "home base" in Ashburn, which also serves as a safe haven to many of the students.
To sign up for classes at the Black Fire Brigade, just email your name to EMT@BFireB.com. For more information on the organization, visit www.blackfirebrigade.com
