FireFighter Academy

FireFighter Academy (Senior Year Only)

Do you have career aspirations related to Firefighting and first responding? The FireFighter Academy capstone prepares students to become certified as a Firefighter while completing training in areas like fire suppression, search and rescue and basic first aid. Students will be immersed in the Lee’s Summit Fire Department fire training with a certified LSFD FireFighter instructor through drills in the operation of fire hoses for suppressing car and structure fires, extricating victims from car accidents, a burn tower, and learning how to provide emergency first aid to patients. Students will have the opportunity to earn national IFSTA FireFighter I & II certifications that are required for firefighters.  

Students must provide their own transportation for off-campus field/skill training experiences at firefighting training centers in and near Lee’s Summit.

Pending board approval, the course will begin Fall 2024!
