Fire Science Programs
To become a firefighter, it is becoming more and more necessary to have a post-secondary degree in fire science. This degree will provide students with skills in fire safety, fire prevention, building codes, firefighting strategy, and safety codes. Once the fire science degree is complete, students looking to become firefighters must pass written and physical exams in order to start working in the field. The degree can also be helpful in related industries such as law enforcement, public safety, and military fire departments.
