TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Fire College has now officially partnered with the University of West Alabama to offer a unique way to give firefighters who are in training through their programs credit at a university.
The program is something that is completely unique to the Fire College and the University of West Alabama.
The Alabama Fire College already has firefighters from across the country because of their training programs.
This new degree should only increase that while giving the firefighters the opportunity to advance their careers, whether through new positions or salary advancements.
