The Fire Academy covers all aspects of firefighting, firefighter safety, rescue, fire prevention, incident management, emergency vehicle familiarization, emergency driving, fire pump operations and more. It is a blend of classroom and hands-on experience including live firefighting exercises. The academy prepares the student to take four separate state certification examinations: Firefighter I, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Firefighter II, and Hazardous Materials Operations.

The firefighting course is International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) approved and will transfer to Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, as well as most other states. Students culminate their education with the opportunity to experience on-site rotations through area fire departments and emergency dispatch centers. The course fee includes books, uniforms, tests, all equipment and materials.
