Fire and Rescue I
Every year, fires and other emergencies take thousands of lives and destroy property worth billions of dollars.  Firefighters and emergency services workers help protect the public against these dangers by rapidly responding to a variety of emergencies.  They are frequently the first emergency personnel at the scene of a traffic accident or medical emergency and may be called upon to put out a fire, treat injuries or perform other vial functions.  The Fire and Rescue curriculum may include five Indiana state fire certifications: (1) Mandatory, (2) Firefighter I, (3) Firefighter II, (4) Hazardous Materials Awareness, and (5) Hazardous Materials Operations.  

Fire and Rescue II
Fire and Rescue II builds on skills learned in Fire and Rescue I.  The Fire and Rescue II curriculum includes fire officer strategy and tactics with basic inspection and investigation tactics.

A requirement for this class is having a current physical.
