Chico, Calif.--More than a dozen city leaders, parents, and other community members got a taste of what it takes to be a firefighter.

The annual 3 day long Citizens' Academy put participants to the test, rescuing someone trapped in a car, hazmat training, and EMS as well, even rappelling off a building.

Action News Now's Cort Klopping participated this year; he'll share that story with you in the coming days.

The welcome relief of showers will be with us this evening! They will continue to push through most places in the valley. Some places may not see some rain given their proximity to the mountains and the effects of a rain shadow
