Teens learn life lessons while fighting fires [Video]
Georgetown County has something be proud of. Their school system is leading the way in South Carolina in making unique employment opportunities for students getting ready to graduate high school.
When the 14 students enrolled in the class complete their requirements they will be certified and ready to be hired as firefighters anywhere in the country when they turn 18.
It’s the perfect opportunity for students who may not see college as an option for any number of reasons, including financial reasons.
Even for those who choose to go to college after high school and those who don’t go into firefighting, the class teaches important life skills.
