To whom it may concern,

Hello, I am very interested in becoming a part of the firefighter trainee program and was curious if there will be another opening to submit an application and when the program starts, and if so, when? I would very much appreciate a response back to this because this is a career i would love to explore and be a part of.

Thank YOU!! Sincerely,
Kalene Santos
