“I found the Fire Services Administration program at EOU to be very important in my development as a chief officer, and the classes to be truly relevant and rewarding.”

Scott Stanton
Chief, Umatilla Fire District #1


“Our program fills in the gaps to give managers the skills they need, but typically don’t receive with on-the-job training alone. We cover everything from communications to legal aspects and the fundamentals of business with courses tailored directly to the specialized field of emergency medical healthcare.”
