In the Firefighter Program students learn both the academic and professional training necessary for careers in Fire Protection. The Firefighter program can be completed in one year. This program prepares students for jobs as volunteer firefighters that may be converted to paid positions with training and experience.

The majority of situations firefighters respond to are medical - rather than fire - emergencies. Students may choose a two-year program that is Firefighter for the first year and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for the second year.

Students must be age 16 or 17 at start of the Firefighter Program (Fire Cadet.)
