Iowa Fire Academies

Iowa has two big players when it comes to fire training. Iowa State University's Fire Science degree provides hands-on training to those interested in pursuing their career in fire and rescue. The Iowa Fire Service Training Bureau on the other hand is a great resource for those who have already graduated and are looking to gain some experience post-college.
