The Montgomery County Public Schools Fire Science and Rescue Cadet program prepares high school students for a variety of careers in fire and rescue services, including fire prevention, control and emergency medical technology.
Students spend part of the day in their home high school and also attend formal training at the Montgomery County Public Safety Training Academy. Students must complete a minimum of 393 hours of work-based learning and take certification exams. By the time they graduate from high school, students will have earned seven industry certifications and college credit. Students can then continue their post-secondary training at several colleges in the state.
