EMT and Fire Science
The program is designed to serve the educational needs and maintain a balance for initial training and/or professional development. Emergency services is a career field with a constant need for trained personnel, has very good growth and allows for “branching out” into various specialties like private fire protection, industrial safety, and even sales. Most people currently employed in Fire or EMS say that job satisfaction is high due to personal fulfillment and good working conditions.
