The Fire and Emergency Services Administration Program was formed as a partnership between the Fayetteville Fire Department, Fayetteville Technical Community College, and Cumberland County Schools (E.E. Smith High School). Today it serves not only the local community, but students and agencies across the state. Part of its original mission was to serve as an avenue to bring more women and minorities into the fire service and to that end we continue to work towards that goal.
Our program is delivered entirely online for our distance education students. Many of our students enroll in our program after completion of the Associates in Applied Science in Fire Protection Technology from one of the state's community colleges. Traditional resident students are also able to enroll in the program through a dual enrollment process with Fayetteville Technical Community College where lower level course requirements can be met. For additional information on becoming a residential student please contact: Program Director, Barbara R. Russo, firstname.lastname@example.org or Professional Advisor, Gardell Chavis, email@example.com.
