Welcome to Fire Science!
Our faculty members strive to give students the very best preparation for a rewarding career in fire/rescue, EMS, wildland and other uniform services and many related risk-management fields.
Our focus is based on the Community Fire Protection Model - we will help you build skills in proactive (prevention, education), reactive (response, mitigation) and management (leadership, administration) methods so that you are well prepared for a wide range of future challenges and career opportunities.
We also prepare you to compete for the job you want by helping you build your resume, your character, and your life-long learning and job skills -- all the things you need to be successful, safe and healthy.
Congratulations! You are embarking on important and demanding careers. Our academic program is tough. You'll need to apply yourself, manage your time well, study hard and hold yourself accountable when you make mistakes or fall short. We have high expectations for our students (and faculty), but that's one of the reasons the Fire Science program is so well respected. Employers know our graduates are "squared away"!
