The Fire Service program at ECC is designed to provide full time and volunteer fire departments with the opportunity to gain knowledge, practical skills, and certification in modern firefighting, rescue, officer development, and fire department management skills. Programs are open to all fire departments in the Edgecombe County area. A broad range of specialty classes, based on both department needs and new training standards, are offered during the year on the college campus or at various fire departments.
