Lakeland College Fire School Grad

Lakeland College Fire School held a graduation for their 12-week P3 program on October 16.

The Fire School has encountered many interruptions in their programming due to COVID-19, as they were only able to run two programs this year rather than the usual three or four.

Lakeland’s blended program, which consists of some online classes and in-person classes, began in January. Despite COVID-19, students were able to complete the online portion of their course, and completed the in-person portion later in the year.

The P3 program was able to run fully throughout their course with no interruptions, with a full class of 27 students.

“We managed to run both programs without anyone getting sick,” Fire School Dean Chris Senaratne proudly reported.
