Abstract:

The problem is that the City of Tulare Fire Department is the only department within the city that does not require a college degree for key management positions and only requires state fire training certification requirements for positions up to fire captain. The purpose of this research is to determine the educational requirements that would be most beneficial for a chief officer.

The research questions were: a) What are the benefits of requiring a Bachelors Degree for chief officers in the City of Tulare Fire Department? b) What type of college degree requirements, if any, do similar size departments throughout California require? c) What incentives are provided or necessary to encourage fire department personnel to pursue higher education? d) What are some of the challenges to implementing a policy of requiring a college degree? The procedures involved researching numerous periodicals, journals, publications, the internet, personal interviews, and a department educational requirement survey. Results indicated that the department should be requiring a California Fire Chief Certification for chief officer positions.
