    The fire service has a proud tradition of serving their communities with self-less dedication. The honor of becoming a firefighter is one sought after by many, but bestowed upon only a few. Training to become a firefighter is exciting and meaningful. Fortunately, you live in an area that offers a program designed to prepare you for a career in the fire service while you are still in high school.

    The NCTA Fire Science & EMS Program offers professional instruction, amazing facilities, and endless opportunities to not only learn the skills necessary to become a firefighter, but also the skills to be an integral part of a community emergency response team in your own neighborhood.
