High School

While in high school, you should study the physical sciences. You should take either physics or chemistry courses that include laboratory work. Fire science demands some knowledge of hydraulics, physics, and chemistry. For example, laying out sprinkler systems requires skills that are introduced in high school mechanical drawing courses and computer-aided design classes. Algebra and geometry are also recommended, as well as English and writing courses.
