Fire Technology and Administration
Associate in Science
Program Coordinator: Adam Kerop- 860-625-0179
The Fire Technology and Administration program is designed to
provide advanced training and education on the college level that
develops competent technicians who are, or will become, leaders in
fire protection, prevention and administration. It also provides
training and education for personnel of insurance companies and other
industries involved in fire prevention and protection practices.
Working in career and volunteer fire departments, in local, state and federal government agencies, in industry, in architectural and construction firms, insurance organizations, and in related groups, the fire technologist knows the need for fire prevention activities, the necessity to educate both children and adults in fire safety, and the importance of enforcing fire prevention codes.
The program of study, which leads to the Associate in Science Degree in Fire Technology and Administration, is planned to help students meet the professional standards established by the National Fire Protection Association, the Connecticut Commission on Fire Prevention and Control, and the Connecticut Fire Marshal's Training Council.
