The Raleigh Fire Department is looking for the best and brightest to join their team.

The department began accepting applications for the 44th Fire Academy Nov. 1 and will continue accepting them through Nov. 30.

This is a highly competitive process: The Training Division typically receives nearly 1,000 applications from men and women of many backgrounds for each recruit academy. Traditionally, each recruiting class consists of 25-40 people.

The training academy, which includes both intense physical training and a challenging academic program, is 32 weeks long. To graduate, recruits must maintain an 80 percent average.
