BCC Offers New Emergency and Fire Management Degree Pathway

Emergency and Fire Vehicles


Firefighters or first responders interested in furthering their education or high school graduates with a passion for a career in public safety and service have a new degree program to explore at Brunswick Community College (BCC). Launching this fall is a new Emergency and Fire Management pathway to earning an Associate Degree in Public Safety Administration.

The new pathway is one of three Public Safety Administration degree options, including Law Enforcement and Corrections. These five-semester programs prepare students for careers in police departments, emergency management organizations, governmental agencies, industrial firms, correctional facilities, private industries, insurance organizations, educational organizations, security and protective organizations, and self-employment opportunities.

“The new Emergency and Fire Management pathway is entirely online, allowing working students to enroll,” said Lisa Fields, Public Safety Administration Program director. “There’s a growing need for emergency personnel in our service area. Whether students are new to the field or already on the job and enhancing their skills, this degree makes them highly marketable, particularly with its focus on leadership.” Fields also noted that credit for prior learning may also be available to students applying for the new pathway.
