VIDEO: Helena College is revamping its more than 20-year-old fire and emergency services program to meet the changing demands of employers. The program first opened in the fall of 1998 and focused on hands-on, functional fire training. The updated program aims to continue providing this kind of practical fire training, while also meeting the emerging needs and demand for professional certifications and general education. Lyn Stimpson is the program's full-time faculty instructor and chief of the Montana City Fire Department. Stimpson worked for Helena College for approximately five years before being hired full time in May 2020. According to Stimpson, the revamped program will offer students a one-year certificate of applied sciences or a two-year associate of science degree in fire and emergency services.
