Firefighter & EMS Careers
Instituendi, respondere, nisi ~ To train, to respond, to save

The fire service has a proud tradition of serving their communities with self-less dedication. The honor of becoming a firefighter is one sought after by many, but bestowed upon only a few. Training to become a firefighter is exciting and meaningful. Fortunately, you live in an area that offers a program designed to prepare you for a career in the fire service while you are still in high school.

The WANIC Fire and Life Safety Program offers professional instruction, amazing facilities, and endless opportunities to not only learn the skills necessary to become a firefighter, but also the skills to be an integral part of a community emergency response team in your own neighborhood.

 A Firefighter's Pledge


​I promise concern for others. A willingness to help all those in need.

I promise courage - courage to face and conquer my fears. Courage to share and endure the ordeal of those who need me.

I promise strength - strength of heart to bear whatever burdens might be placed upon me. Strength of body to deliver to safety all those placed within my care.

I promise the wisdom to lead, the compassion to comfort, and the love to serve unselfishly whenever I am called.
