Fire Science
The Fire Science program spent significant time the past few weeks working on building construction and forcible entry with Capt. Dave Wiechen from Morris FD.  Captain Dave also teaches nationally for O’Byrne Fire Ground Training.  Our students are fortunate to have such talented, dedicated instructors available to donate their time locally.  GAVC Fire Science students are receiving the same industry specific instruction that current firefighters travel hundreds of miles for.
