Fire Science Technology

  • Fire Science Technology coursework prepares students to pursue careers as modern firefighters – experts in fire prevention and suppression, emergency medicine, hazardous materials and issues related to arson.

    In addition, modern firefighters must be physically fit, be able to deal with people in crisis, think critically and communicate at a high level to a variety of audiences.

    While the work is demanding, a career in Fire Science technology can be rewarding – many positions offer competitive salaries and Fire Departments are estimating they will be replacing 50-55% of their current workforce in the next five years.
