Students are introduced to the equipment and procedures necessary to fight live fires, operate in simulated hazardous-materials incidents, and conduct search-and-rescue operations. Students react to multi-faceted situations (e.g., caused by simulated terrorism, accidents, and natural disasters) as part of an emergency-response team. Students become familiar with emerging technologies such as communications software (e.g., dispatch systems, GIS, mapping systems, incident reporting, and simulation programs), multimedia inputs, thermal imaging cameras, and hazardous gas detectors. Students acquire teamwork, critical-thinking, public-speaking, research, report-writing, and incident-management skills. This course challenges students academically, mentally, and physically.
