Concord Technical Center Program’s Next Generation

Concord Technical Center Program’s Next Generation
March 11, 2024

As fire and emergency departments across New Hampshire struggle to fully staff their teams, the career and technical center in Concord is working to equip the next generation, one that has more women in it than ever before.

For the first time in the course’s near-decade history, a majority of its students, 23 out of 44, are female.

The group is breaking barriers in the program, performing the first all-female operations drill at the school and setting a new speed record on one of its physical tests.

The emergency services program, which teaches both firefighting and EMT certifying skills, aims to build confidence and nurture leadership in all of its students, teaching them to collaborate, be confident and persevere.
