FIRE SCIENCE (FSC)

 

MISSION: The Fire Science program is designed to provide individuals with fundamental skills to enter and progress in the occupation of fire fighter.

 

Every year, fires and other emergencies take thousands of lives and destroy property worth billions of dollars. Fire fighters help protect the public against these dangers by rapidly responding to a variety of emergencies. They are frequently the first emergency personnel at the scene of a traffic accident or medical emergency and may be called upon to put out a fire, treat injuries, or perform other vital functions. Graduates of the Fire Science program are prepared to respond immediately to a fire or any other emergency that arises.
