The associate’s degree program in Fire Science will prepare students to pursue careers in firefighting, fire protection services, and affiliated professions.

The curriculum includes coursework in fire behavior, emergency medicine, hazardous materials chemistry, incident strategy and tactics, administration of emergency services, fire prevention, and occupational safety and health.

The program will also prepare students for certification in both firefighting (NFPA Firefighter I) and emergency medicine (EMT-B). As well as preparing students for the fire service, the program will provide strong leadership skills and instill graduates with a sense of community service.

Some typical career choices for graduates of the Fire Science program include firefighters; emergency medical technicians; fire, police, and ambulance dispatchers; fire suppression and alarm system installers and technicians; fire inspectors; and fire investigators.
