Fire Science

IMPORTANT MESSAGE for Health Science Program Students

If you are participating in an externship or ride-along experience, a completed COVID series plus booster dose and current Influenza vaccination is required for Health Science students.

The Fire Science program is for individuals who are interested in or currently serving in the fire service or related fields. Graduates work for municipal fire departments or obtain positions in the fields of industrial fire safety and security, fire protection engineering technology, fire insurance inspection, investigation underwriting and ambulance services.

A balanced combination of professional and general education courses equips students with the knowledge and skills needed in this increasingly technological field. Fire protection systems and codes, tactics and strategies, hydraulics and equipment, officership and administration, and hazardous materials are studied.
