Fire Protection

A.A.S. Degree (S)

This curriculum is designed to provide the necessary knowledge and skills to work in many areas of the fire protection field and to help solve fire protection and related safety problems in our complex technological society. Technical changes within industry and an increase in the number, variety, type of chemicals, flammable and combustible products, and population densities have accentuated the fire problem. The fire protection engineering technician has a broad scope of occupational opportunities in a variety of areas which include insurance, industry, equipment manufacturers, municipal, and state agencies. Fire protection engineering technicians apply their knowledge in a systematic approach to plans review, occupancy inspections for code compliance, fire prevention planning, fire safety and loss prevention programs, fire administration, equipment representation and sales, and fire protection system design. Laboratory work, field inspections, and field trips provide added experiences. The Fire Protection program emphasizes design and application principles.
