The mission of the FIRE Academy is to provide students with a quality education and leadership development program; and an opportunity to explore potential career options in fire and emergency medical services.
The instructional staff is comprised of active-duty and retired fire service professionals who support the academic curriculum by sharing real-world experiences. Students participate in a variety of practical demonstrations and assignments designed to expand their knowledge and experience base in the areas of firefighting, fire prevention, and emergency medical services.

1. Discipline, self-respect and confidence
2. Integrity, honor, and personal courage
