About Fire Science / Firefighting Colleges:

Many community colleges and vocational schools offer a certificate in this field to prepare candidates for employment as firefighters. Besides the usual college-level courses in science, mathematics, and communications, the program provides a knowledge of hazardous materials, building construction, and firefighter safety. Most states also require a firefighter to pass a physical and proficiency exam before beginning work with a fire department.

What is fire science?

Simply put, it's the study of managing, suppressing and extinguishing fires. There is much more than just simply spraying water on a fire to put it out. Knowing the strategy and technique behind fighting fires is extremely important if you are going to be a firefighter for a living. Whether it is how different chemicals react or how wind speed and direction affect what you do next, gaining knowledge at a fire science school is important to have a long, successful career as a firefighter.

What skills should I have to go into fire science?

A strong desire to help people, a high tolerance for physical activity and labor, the ability to think on your feet and stay calm under pressure are several keys to being a firefighter.

What training do I go through at a fire science college?

Hands-on training is typical, as well as first aid, CPR, taking photos, using fire extinguishers and other heavy equipment, how to clear a building of smoke are just a few of the training exercises you might go through.
