The Fire/EMS Program is a result of a partnership between DPS and the City and is an extension of the City of Dayton’s Homegrown Heroes initiative that seeks to increase the number of women and minorities in the City’s safety forces.
The program is open to students in grades 10-12 and is housed at Belmont High School. Students who complete the program will be qualified to apply for entry-level positions with the Dayton Fire Department upon graduation.
Classes are taught by DFD instructors and include courses in career exploration and emergency medical services, as well as certification courses for the Firefighter I And EMT exams.
Interested students can fill out a CTE Application.
