Emergency Services Management
– Phil Cornelius Baker Student
During my second semester, I had a job offer, and by the third, I was employed in two different agencies.
A degree in Emergency Services Management prepares you for managing emergencies in both the public and private sectors.
In this program, which is designed to meet the needs of those who are currently employed in or planning to pursue a career in Emergency Services Management, you will:
- Focus on individual and group problem-solving, as well as management and supervision.
- Explore current issues specific to Emergency Services, including law and ethics.
Students must enter the program with a total of 48 credits derived from any combination of:
- Paramedic credentials.
- Basic EMT credentials.
- Fire Fighter I and II credentials.
The remaining credits may consist of approved portfolio, previous credits from an approved accredited institution, lifelong learning experiences, or any combination.
- EMT salaries average about $31,000. EMTs who work in local government, including fire, police, and independent third-service rescue squad departments, usually have better salaries and benefits.
- The EMT field is growing faster than average. Employment of Emergency Medical Technicians is expected to grow by 19 percent by 2016.
