Coffeyville Community College recently announced the planned fire up of the Fire Science program to start in summer 2012.  CCC in conjunction with the Coffeyville Fire Department will begin offering the Firefighter I course this summer with additional courses being offered during the Fall 2012 semester. 

Program courses will be offered in three formats, including traditional lecture and lab activities, completely online, and some as hybrid courses (partially face-to-face and partially online).  The Fire Science curriculum is designed in accordance with the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) standards.

CCC Health and Safety Occupations Director, Lisa Miller, said, "this program will be beneficial to area fire departments for recruitment of new firefighters and for continued training opportunities for current staff".  Coffeyville Fire Chief James Grimmett will serve as the primary instructor for the program.
