2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
. I would provide better equipment to learn with. Not a new fire truck. The new fire truck was
nice, but not a necessity. Give us updated turn out gear, PROPS, and up to date accessory
gear. Give us the ability to do more burns, smokey rescues, and integrate some mini
internships into the long drawn out semesters. Provide more opportunities for internships (
Winona, Rochester, and so on). Make this program a fire/ medic program. Integrate and
intermingle paramedic with fire degrees. Get some firefighter paramedics willing to teach us
how it is in real life. Teacher requirements should be firefighter paramedics, currently working
in the industry with 5 years experience in a fire company or on an ALS ambulance.

Also, although physical fitness is important as a firefighter, the classes are a complete waste
of time and are of no use. They make members of this class have suicidal ideations because
of the class material.
