Fire Science Schools

Fires can take a huge toll. They can take lives, destroy property, and devastate a family, a business, or an entire community. While fire can be beneficial to mankind, it can also act as a villain, gutting homes and tearing away memories of happier times. Fortunately, firefighters are out there putting their lives on the line to protect the lives and livelihoods of others. These heroes understand that, in order to combat their enemy, they must first know their enemy. Firefighters who want to have an advantage, both in their daily lives and in their career, will want to pursue a degree in fire science. It can provide them with valuable knowledge.
