Im a 2nd generation FF and have grown up in the fire service and couldnt see myself doing anything else. I would love to see the fire service start to embrace the traditions of the past carry them on for the next generation.

Thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting). OIt's a leadership and fire ground decisison making page on the site. Jump into any discussion at any time. There are always some good ones going on. What do you guys do for officer development? You mention lack of aggressive firefighting, what are the problems that you are finding? Are you going to FDIC?
First I appologize for not commenting back sooner. UC is a great college the team of professors are top notch. I would recommend you goto the UC web site for price information, I'm sure it has changed since my enrollment prior to 2007. You can expect to learn some extensive fire related courses i.e. Fire Dynamics, Analytical Approach to Fire Service. You will be provided with course publications to purchase and contact via email, phone, or web based instruction as you progress through each course of study. A lot of reading, research, thinking, and writing are also a large part of the education. You can do it, I was married with 3 children, two jobs, church, and my wife working and I made it through the four year program in five and a half years with a degree and honors. So my advise would be; if its a degree you are looking to complete go for it and apply at UC.
