Mid-State Technical College is meeting the needs of both local fire departments and private employers by providing state certified firefighting courses, FEMA approved courses, numerous safety and leadership courses, as well as custom tailored courses. Within the MSTC service area thirty-eight fire departments provide fire protection service to the residents of Wood, Portage, and Adams Counties. In addition to offering evening and weekend courses in the spring and fall, the MSTC Fire Service program offers a summer fire academy in which students have the opportunity to earn both Firefighter 1 and Firefighter II Certification over the course of ten weeks. Training sites are currently located at the Wisconsin Rapids campus and through a joint training center with the Marshfield Fire and Rescue Department. Outdoor training facilities include two splashboards within the district, live fire training simulator (burn building), and various other training props to simulate real-world situations.
