“Being professional, thorough, knowledgeable, inquisitive, moral, and ethical are character traits that are most critical to being a firefighter. The degree program helped me develop those skills by exposing me to important literature, laws, moral and ethical issues, and leadership skills I had never thought about or knew existed.”
