high school fire academy logo

Randolph Community College, in collaboration with Randolph County Public Schools and county fire departments, started a high school fire academy in February 2015. The program provides high school students, age 16 years and older, an introduction to the fire service.

While taking part in this after-school program, students will be earning credits toward the completion of their North Carolina Firefighter certification. Classes will cover topics such as fire behavior, personal protective equipment, and emergency medical care.

If a student chooses to complete the entire program, they will be just a few classes short of becoming a North Carolina certified firefighter upon their 18th birthday. Participants are also encouraged to join their local volunteer fire department junior program,. This will afford them access to equipment and give them the opportunity to learn as part of an organization in addition to the fire academy.
