Helping You Succeed

FIRE Tech Academy is approved by the Washington State Department of Health, the Central Region Trauma and EMS Council, and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

Every class is taught by a firefighter/EMT or paramedic. These firefighters use stories of medical calls they went on the shift before to add real-world context to academic topics.

Benefits of being a FIRE Tech alumni include follow through and advice in moving onto the next level. As a member of the FIRE Tech family, we do our best to help you succeed and move forward in future endeavors beyond this class.
