This program is designed to prepare the student for employment in fire service in either public or private sectors. If students plan to continue their education at a four-year school, this curriculum will be deficient in certain academic areas. Therefore, students interested in completing a baccalaureate degree should work closely with their advisors.
Firefighters may be called upon to put out a fire, treat injuries, or perform other vital functions. Frequently the first to respond to emergencies, most firefighters are trained in emergency medical procedures. Firefighters work in a variety of settings, including urban, suburban, industrial, and forests and grasslands. Firefighting training and tactics vary depending upon the environment.
