​As a student in our Emergency Services (ES) program, you will build the
foundation for a career as a first responder to medical, fire and other
emergency situations. In your first year of this two-year program, you will
dive into both emergency medical and fire response training, learning
daily from active career-professionals. In Emergency Services I (ES1) you’ll
be able to earn an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) certificate, and
potentially some fire training certificates through testing, after classroom
and online training. Emergency Services II gives you two options: either
earning your EMT certificate in our Health Science II class, or earning your
Firefighter I certificate by taking an off-site, non-high school course—with
our support and mentorship—through a local fire department, LRCC or
the NH Fire Academy. ES1 involves some meetings outside of the normal
class day in order to facilitate more complex practical exercises at the state
Fire Academy and Concord’s training site, as well as emergency medicine
ride-alongs. ES2 Firefighter I certificate option requires more time outside
the school day.

Note: At present, the ES1 course is only offered from 11:05 am to 12:35 pm daily. Students from
Pittsfield and Bow will be allowed (with proper permission) to drive, as buses will not be offered.
