When the alarm sounds will you rapidly respond to the call? Fire fighters are regarded as the true heroes of every community and are more in demand than ever before.
What will my classes be like?
As you train to become a fire fighter, you'll learn how to extinguish, confine, or escape from fire. Begin by learning fire suppression, fire chemistry, forcible entry, and search and rescue techniques. Practice what you've learned by performing drills with ropes, ladders, hoses, and a fire engine. Ride along with local fire departments to see the skills you've learned in action. Smoke the competition, become a real life hero, and climb the ladder to success. Picture
