TECH Rescue 2018, an organization dedicated to providing career and education information for the Fire Science community, recently launched a Wisconsin guide focused on providing career and education information.  We provide a list of schools and programs from the U.S. federal government National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), which contains a database of accredited Fire Science / Prevention / Safety Technology majors.  We also have interviewed fire experts from various departments, and highlighted a few select schools.  On the career side, we provide income tables in Wisconsin for Firefighters, Fire Inspectors / Investigators, and Fire Service Supervisors, talk about fire training, and also have a full section dedicated to Public Service Careers - see our top navigation.  Anyone can access the Wisconsin guide here:
