PG&E Awards LCC Fire Technology Program Scholorship Grant

The Lassen College Fire Technology Program gets a PG&E grant to provide scholarships and training equipment. PG&E has awarded 17 thousand 500 dollars to the program that will go to benefit students seeking an associate of Science in Fire Technology. The program feeds skilled graduates into the ranks of local and state fire agencies. In two years 50 graduates of the program have already entered the firefighting workforce, with many graduating from Lassen Community College’s newest Cal Fire Basic Academy who will have the potential to be picked up by Cal Fire. PG&E Regional VP of North Valley and Sierra said in a statement that the company recognizes it is critical to have highly trained and knowledgeable fire professionals and appreciates the opportunity to help increase and enhance the skills of the area’s future fire service workforce.
