Fire Science provides students with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to function as an entry-level firefighter. EMT training is included as an essential component of the curriculum. The program is designed on a two-year rotational basis, with each new group of students beginning the program on even numbered years. Fire Science courses are taught through a combination of lecture and cooperative training. Many students volunteer with local fire departments to gain more hands-on practice of their skills. WWCC works closely with local fire departments, the EMS system, and the state association in order to offer a quality program, and curriculum is reviewed by an advisory board composed of these local, state and regional industry members.
