Dayton Public Schools continued its expansion of career tech programs Wednesday, announcing creation of a firefighter-emergency medical technician program at Belmont High School starting this fall. Courses eventually will be taught to freshmen through seniors by Dayton Fire Department instructors, and students will have the opportunity to take state certification tests while still in high school. Graduates could enter the workforce as emergency medical technicians or continue their education in Sinclair’s Fire Academy program. “This program will provide career opportunities immediately out of high school for our students, as well as recruits for our city,” DPS Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli said.The new program is an extension of the City of Dayton Homegrown Heroes initiative that seeks to increase the number of women and minorities in the city’s safety forces.
