On Thursday, October 28, 2018, the Fire and Emergency Services Administration Program at East Georgia State College hosted its fourth annual FESA Advisory Council meeting, held at the Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center on EGSC’s Swainsboro campus.
Participants were updated on the states of both the Bachelor and Associate degree programs in Fire and Emergency Services Administration, as well as the availability of new scholarships for the program. Battalion Chief Merritt Kearns presented an overview of the recent training workshop “Saving Those That Save Others,” which addressed behavioral health in fire and emergency services.
Fire Chief Pat Wilson of Coweta County Fire Department then delivered a presentation on leadership qualities that was well received by the group.
The FESA Advisory Council is composed of fire and emergency services administrators from across the state of Georgia. Also in attendance at this year’s meeting were several students from EGSC’s FESA Program.
The Fire and Emergency Services Administration degree program at EGSC is a one-of-a-kind program in the state of Georgia and offers the only Bachelor degree in this major in the University System of Georgia.
