Fire, Emergency Management, EMS, & Occupational Safety


When the fire alarm goes off, firefighters have to be ready to answer the call to save lives and protect property within their community. Halifax Community College takes great pride in training area men and women to perform these heroic tasks. HCC works diligently to offer the necessary training to these professionals both on and off campus at local fire departments. HCC has been offering innovative new courses such as PADI certified underwater rescue as well as core classes for new members and refreshers for the veteran firefighters.
