Emergency Services Week

Tomorrow from noon to 3pm by the fountains on main campus we will have our fire academy students and coordinator out showing off the engines and letting students spray the hoses. Come out and join us and tell anyone who is not a part of this department but may be interested to see what we are all about. I will be there to talk with students too. Today we had AirMed land on campus and it was a great time for the students.
Each day we will have a different event and this goes all week! Check back to the blog or to our Facebook page to see details of what is coming up!

Good morning students! How is everyone today? Should be a wonderfully warm day today so take the chance to study outside.

Couple of announcements:

Fall Semester Priority Registration
Begins Monday, March 31
March 31 ..... 110 credit hours & over
April 1 ......... 90 credits & over
April 2 ......... 60 credits & over
April 3 ......... 30 credits & over
April 7 ......... begins 0 credits & over

Paramedic applications are due April 1st. Please get them in ASAP! Same goes for RCA applications that are due June 1st. I know this deadline is further away but it still benefits everyone if you get it in as soon as you can. Applications are on our main web page.

CPAT Orientation is on June 13th and 14th with official CPAT test date being July 12th. This is also another set of events that you want to sign up early for. Orientation gives you the advantage of knowing what is required in the CPAT and a practice test. The official CPAT will fill up quickly as many students need it.

On a last note, we had an awesome Firefighter Rookie Challenge this past Saturday! We had a VIP visitor, Coy Porter, Utah State Fire Marshal and we were on the front page of the Sunday Daily Herald. This was our largest class yet with 20 students. The majority came from UVU but we had several from Provo High School as we have opened up the program to 17 and 18 year old high school students. Everyone had a great time! We will hold another one in September so if you are interested please come and see me.
