Every year, fires and other emergencies take thousands of lives and destroy property worth billions of dollars. Although firefighting is highly competitive, the program at BATC has proudly placed 99 percent of our graduates. In addition to putting out fires, climbing ladders, and carrying hoses, firefighters typically treat victims and perform other vital life-saving or civil service functions while working in teams. This field offers many opportunities for advancement, including fire inspector, investigator, hazardous materials or rescue specialists, captain, etc. Due to the nature of the work, this is a career that will always need skilled and qualified workers.
"The BATC RCA graduating class is a great resource for the City of North Logan to hire trained certified firefighters and emergency medical technicians. We have used this resource many times and have hired several graduating students who now run day to day emergency calls for our city. Without this program, it would take a lot of time and money to have the same results and dedication that is accomplished in months at BATC" -Chief Jon Keller, North Logan Fire Department
