First Responders Campus

The long-awaited First Responders Campus is now open, bringing together all Fresno City College first responder certificate programs in one location. These include the Fire and Police academies, Advanced Officer Training, State Fire Training courses, the Probation Academy, the Juvenile Corrections Academy, and the Emergency Medical Technician program (EMT).  There are two Associate Degree programs currently offered in the Fire Technology Department, and a third will be added in the Fall of 2024. The 40-acre site is at 3300 East North Avenue (northwest corner of North and Willow). 

The facility features state-of-the-art training tools including training structures, a scenario village, simulation technology for scenario-based training, a fitness room, a running track, a mat room, clinical skills training suites, and a driving pad. Funding for the $46.1 million project came from Measure E ($45m) and Measure C ($1.1m). The voters approved Measure E in 2016 and Measure C in 2002.

The application process for each of the programs follows specific guidelines and requirements. Please see the links below to access each program.
