Emergency & Fire Management

Students in the Emergency and Fire Management pathway will begin the pathway with an introductory course designed to provide students with knowledge of occupations available in the Law, Public Safety and Security (LPSS) fields.

Students in the Emergency and Fire Management pathway will begin the pathway with an introductory course designed to provide students with knowledge of occupations available in the Law, Public Safety and Security (LPSS) fields. Numerous guest speakers, site visits, and classroom instruction will introduce them to the legal system, professional conduct, safety, and types of crime. Following the LPSS course, students then investigate and practice the skills for the EMT certification test and the Firefighter I national certification test. Pathway focus areas include: emergency medical care, fire behavior, fire fighting equipment and rescue and safety procedures.

*Students must be 18 years old to sit for the certifications tests.

Professional Certificate/Industry Recognized Credential:

  • CPR/AED- all students will partake in the CPR/AED lessons and will pass the written and skills exam during year one (two semesters)
  • National Firefighter Level 1- students must be in the pathway for a minimum of one year (two semesters) in order to be referred on, to take the exam.  Students are taught the competencies during year one, however that does not guarantee that they will pass the rigorous and timed exam. TPS does not give or proctor the exam, this is done through the Kansas Fire & Rescue Training Institute.
