I understand that submitting this application does not guarantee me a seat in the Fire Science Academy at South Baldwin Center for Technology.  I understand that due to age requirements of the Alabama Fire College, that students who meet all other expectations of the program and whom are closer to 18 years of age will have preferential selection status. 

This program will follow as closely as possible the Alabama Fire College standards to include the physical requirements of becoming a fire fighter. Students selected for this program will have the same physical requirements of any other cadet going through a Fire Training program. 

I understand that there are a series of tests and skills required for this program, which follow the Alabama Fire College requirements to become a Volunteer Fire Fighter.

Tests, both written and skilled, may be administered and/or evaluated by personnel of the Alabama Fire College and in a case where scores are made available to myself only, I will make those scores available to my high school Fire Science Instructor.

I understand that acceptable progressions through the series of courses in the Fire Science Academy will result the student’s removal from the program.
