“The Fire Technology Academy Training Facility is an example of how EPCC provides high-quality and affordable instruction,” Steve Smith, Vice President of Instruction and Workforce Education said. “EPCC is training workers with the skills to sustain and improve quality of life in our region.”

“The students trained at this facility have committed to a career of saving lives and helping individuals in our community stay safe,” Myshie Pagel, Dean of Career and Technology Education.
