Lake Havasu City Fire, Rescue & EMS is happy to announce the start of our new WAVE/CTE Fire Service Program in partnership with Lake Havasu High School. The Fire Service program is designed to introduce students to careers in the fire service, by focusing on the principals, theory, and practices associated with the  management of fire operations, firefighting services, and community fire issues.

Students will spend time both in the classroom and on the training grounds.  Classroom lessons will include the mission and structure of the fire service, communication, building construction, fire dynamics, and an introduction to hazardous materials analysis.  They will earn their First Aid and CPR certificates, and have hands-on training with personal protective equipment, portable fire extinguishers, ropes and knots, grounds ladders and more.

Level 1 – Fundamentals will be offered this spring as a pilot program.  In the next school year, both Level 1- Fundamentals, and Level 2 – Advanced will be offered.  We will be working to encourage more students to move into the emergency services pathway at MCC.  Our goal is to develop fire service professionals who are committed to working in Lake Havasu City and are looking for preparation to help them reach that goal.
