High School/CTC Programs
Fire service training for youths over the age of 16 is recognized by the fire service in the State of South Carolina as a valuable means of recruiting and retaining future volunteer and career firefighters. The overarching goal is to help program leaders and administrators establish fire service training that complies with the rules and instructional objectives set forth by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications. Our governing document is the High School/Career & Technology Firefighter I & II Program Policy and the Junior Member Programs Policy. This information is intended to help ensure the consistency and effectiveness of firefighter programs offered throughout the state.
