Law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical service (EMS) careers demand quick thinking, adrenalin and sweat to answer the calls from individuals who need help or when responding to a natural or manmade disaster. First trimester, students will learn how to assess and treat wounded or sick patients while on scene by using all of the equipment found in an ambulance or rescue truck. During second trimester, this class focuses on criminal investigative techniques, state traffic and criminal law, and gives students an inside view of the wide variety of law enforcement career choices offered by local, state and federal agencies. Third trimester, the class includes learning fire suppression techniques while in full firefighter turnout gear, incident management, and awareness level certification in hazardous materials response.
