The Emergency Services degree program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is one of just a few university programs to carry the “Certificate of Recognition” from Fire Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE). That means the curriculum addresses all critical areas that modern fire departments are tasked to perform.

Students can select from a specialization in Aviation Emergency Management or Fire & Emergency Services and learn from faculty members who have both academic backgrounds and proven expertise as emergency responders. Plus, when students complete courses through Embry-Riddle, they receive a National Fire Academy certificate just as if they completed the courses at the National Fire Academy.

As members of the Embry-Riddle network, students get the chance to collaborate with colleagues, leadership, and other professionals in their own organization’s communities while completing coursework.

Students can also take advantage of Embry-Riddle's partnerships with the Dallas/Fort Worth Fire Training Research Center (DFW FTRC) and the Aircraft Fire Fighting (ARFF) Working Group to develop and carry out research projects.

About Emergency Services at the Worldwide & Online Campus

The Emergency Services degree program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University broadly encompasses all emergency service response disciplines in public and private sectors including: fire, emergency medical, investigation, engineering, aircraft rescue and firefighting, environmental, hazmat, inspection, dispatch, security, OSHA, instruction, public information and wildland firefighting.

The curriculum design for this degree is based on in the National Fire Academy’s Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Model Curriculum for a Bachelor’s Degree. Beyond the six FESHE core courses, several additional Embry-Riddle-developed courses have been approved for students to receive NFA certificates — this is a unique advantage of taking classes at Embry-Riddle.

There are two specializations offered at the baccalaureate level:

  • Aviation Emergency Management Specialization has a focus on aircraft accident investigation, airport emergency management, aviation safety, and leadership in emergency response organizations.
  • Fire and Emergency Services Specialization focuses on emergency response administration, management, leadership, community risk reduction, and operational issues in emergency services.

Worldwide programs are offered in over 100 locations. Please check the website for more details.
