Welcome to Hutchinson Community College

Fire Science - AAS

This program is designed to prepare the student for employment in fire service in either public or private sectors. If students plan to continue their education at a four-year school, this curriculum will be deficient in certain academic areas. Therefore, students interested in completing a baccalaureate degree should work closely with their advisors.

Careers

Firefighters may be called upon to put out a fire, treat injuries, or perform other vital functions. Frequently the first to respond to emergencies, most firefighters are trained in emergency medical procedures. Firefighters work in a variety of settings, including urban, suburban, industrial, and forests and grasslands. Firefighting training and tactics vary depending upon the environment.

Accreditation

Hutchinson Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional institutional accreditors recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
