EPCC Fire Tech Program to provide Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Detectors to community

Thanks to a grant from State Farm, the El Paso Community College (EPCC) Fire Technology Program will provide education on home safety and fire prevention this weekend.

The informational sessions, at both the EPCC’s Northwest Campus and Mission del Paso Campus, will be curbside and feature fire prevention information, home safety as well as carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.

Tips will be provided by the Fire Tech Program on how to appropriately respond to various emergencies which might be encountered in the home or workplace, raging from gas leaks to fire.

The EPCC Fire Technology Program is training first responders for emergencies in our community. The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Fire Science Option provides students with professional-level education to meet personnel needs in the fire science field.

The Certificate satisfies the Texas Commission on Fire Protection’s requirements for Texas Basic Structure Fire Protection Certification. Students are also eligible for International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) seals.
