"JCC has helped me save lives"Since I was a young boy, I’ve always wanted to be a firefighter. I started out as a volunteer fireman when I was 18 and today I earn my living as the chief of the fire department in Selma.
I’ve been able to make a career in fire service because of my training at Johnston Community College. For the past 15 years, I’ve spent thousands of hours in classrooms at JCC honing my skills so that I can better protect and serve my community. As an instructor at JCC, I also train other firemen to be better life savers.
JCC’s emergency responder courses are an excellent resource for fire and rescue departments in the county and surrounding areas. The no-cost, high-quality training is an asset to small, rural departments operating on limited funds.
I owe my career to JCC and I’m thankful I had such excellent training options in my home county.
I’m Phillip McDaniel and I received my fire training at Johnston Community College.
