Examination of the training needed to become a fire fighter or a police officer.


Protective Services: Fire and Police takes a look at the resources available training to become a fire fighter or law enforcement officer.

 Fire fighters not only train to put out fires, they study how fires burn, they investigate the causes of fire, and they work within the community to promote fire safety.  Additionally the men and women in the fire service deal with life saving rescues and medical situations.





Law enforcement officers are the first line of defense in criminal and civil matters.  They give us reminders of when we have forgotten traffic rules and regulations.  They act as mediators between neighbors. When members of the community suffer physical or property damage, officers conduct investigations that lead to the apprehension of the perpetrators.  Officers also work within the community to provide safety training and awareness programs.
