Did you know that aspiring firefighters have a fantastic pathway into a fire science career right in our backyard in the Rockford area?

Many of our members at North Park Fire are currently RVC Fire Science students or alumni, and many more of our folks that have moved on to career departments got their start at RVC's fire science program.

Rock Valley College continues to deliver extraordinary growth opportunities in this region, and their continued support of the fire science program is just a small piece of that puzzle!
