Volunteer Firefighter Training is Tuition-Free
Volunteer firefighters risk their lives to keep people and places safe in Oklahoma.  In fact, 95 percent of all firefighters in Oklahoma are volunteers.  Most rural communities depend solely on volunteers for fire protection.  SouthernTech, and technology centers throughout the state, are constantly working to help keep rural fire departments staffed with properly trained individuals.  Safety is a top concern; not only for our volunteer firefighters, but also for the people they are charged with protecting.  SouthernTech’s firefighter training helps our volunteers maintain their certifications, keep up with risk benefits, and build a support network they can rely on.
