General information

Recognized by the Community College Futures Assembly as a 2007 Bellwether Award top 10 finalist for creating a partnership with local governmental entities, combining public resources to reduce training costs and maximize program effectiveness to train firefighters enabling them to develop skills using the latest state-of-the-art firefighting technology and equipment. The future of employment in emergency services is excellent. There is a nationwide shortage of firefighters and paramedics. As the population in the United States continues to grow, and the "baby boomers" get older, there will be a greater demand on emergency services and EMS in particular.
