TVCC Fire Science Program

TVCC Fire Science Program Higher Education Trinity Valley Community College is eager to grow the fire science program and would like to invite anyone that is interested in firefighting, fire prevention, or fire investigations to contact us for more information.

The fire science program at TVCC is different than what many community colleges have to offer. Our curriculum is designed to incorporate Texas Commission on Fire Protection (TCFP) training standards into our coursework, meaning that students will be eligible for up to four separate TCFP certifications upon graduation with an associate's degree. A major goal of our program is to teach fire-related courses that examine the historical, present, and future trends of the fire service. Our philosophy is to provide students with many tools for their toolbox and to develop the critical-thinking skills needed to choose the right tool. We also provide relevant classes that will help you in your fire service career, no matter how experienced you are. Students with no experience may choose to obtain TXDSHS EMT-Basic certification to jump-start their career. Students with more experience will benefit from exposure to each of the major divisions within a fire department and fire administration courses. Some of the biggest concerns among firefighters is the cost of tuition and scheduling conflicts that often interfere with pursuing higher education. At TVCC, rest assured that instructors will be flexible with your 24/48 work schedule and reasonable accommodations will be made. Courses are offered online to make them more accessible. If you are a firefighter, you are also eligible for tuition exemption. You can also get college credit for the certifications you already have. After completing the paperwork, you can get credit for your TCFP Firefighter and TXDSHS EMT-B or Paramedic certifications. TVCC's Fire Science Program is dedicated to helping students achieve their personal and professional goals. Advisors are always available to guide students through any questions they may have along the way. Make that phone call or send that email now, it will be worth it.

The TVCC Fire Science program is currently seeking contact information for all fire departments located in Kaufman, Henderson, Anderson, Van Zandt, and Rains counties. We would like to ask some questions about how TVCC can partner with your department to meet any training needs.

If you are a member of any of these departments (especially chief-level officers) please shoot us an email at [email protected] so we can open up the discussion. At this point, we are looking for two or three reliable contacts for each department. Please include the department name, and a name, email, and phone # for each contact.

Any help in relaying this message to the appropriate people is appreciated!

The firefighting strategies and tactics class finished the spring semester with a live burn demonstration at the Terrell campus. Using a plywood dollhouse, students were able to observe the various stages of fire development, flow paths and fire movement, and the effects of ventilation on a fire.
