Welcome to GAVC Fire Science 2020-2021
Here at GAVC we are excited to begin our 2020-2021 school year in Fire Science! First and foremost, we would like to welcome back all of our returning Fire Science students who have enrolled in Fire Science II. These students will continue to build on the firefighting skills they have learned last year, as well as setting foot into the world of emergency medicine as they begin the year with Emergency Medical Responder. An introduction into human anatomy & physiology, basic first-aid and ambulance transport will be the focus of our 1st semester. The 2nd semester we will shift our focus back to firefighting as we explore a more advanced look into fire prevention and suppression.
We would also like to welcome our newly enrolled 1st year students. The Fire Science I class will focus the year on the very basic principles of firefighting, including fire behavior, safety equipment, hose deployment, ladders and search & rescue. Students will get a great deal of hands-on experience as we learn the tools of the trade and how to work in a zero-visibility environment.
Both classes will end the year with our live burn training conducted in May 2021, which will bring together all of the skills learned throughout the year. We look forward to seeing everyone in August and to a great upcoming year!
