Fire Technology


 

East Central College offers a program of study leading to an Associate of Applied Science degree in Fire Technology. The certificate program provides students with the courses to meet entry-level skills necessary for employment as a firefighter. Firefighters seeking promotion or career opportunities tend to utilize the Associate of Applied Science degree option. The College recognizes and articulates coursework acquired through approved training agencies and articulates specific certificates offered in training through the University of Missouri – Columbia.

 

The rapid growth of Franklin County and adjoining counties has resulted in increasing demands to provide necessary community service courses. The Fire Technology program meets the needs of both volunteer firefighters and professional firefighters. The courses are designed to develop the fire protection specialist’s qualifications in supervision and fire control techniques. The courses address: basic fire protection, alarm systems, general building construction, hazardous materials, inspection, fire prevention, fire investigation, firefighting tactics/strategies, apparatus driver/operator and rescue techniques among other topics.
