Fire Science Technology
The firefighting profession cannot be compared to other day-to-day professions because their work is on a whole different level. Fire service professionals do so much to help keep our communities and people safe. For example, they fight flames, take care of gunfire and risk their lives by pulling people at risk out of danger zones. Firefighters are able to work under high-stress conditions at all times, and most are well-equipped with knowledge and the ability to perform first response on a need-basis.
The mission of the Fire Science program is to provide the fire service communities with students prepared for employment and advancement opportunities in Fire and Emergency Services. The program provides innovative and engaging learning opportunities in executive development, anti-arson techniques, emergency and disaster preparedness, hazardous materials control, and public fire safety and education through virtual assessment. Completion of the program leads to a diploma or an applied associate degree in Fire Science.
