IRSC GRADUATE JACOB ORTIZ TAKES PRIDE
IN SERVING THE COMMUNITY AS A FIREFIGHTER/EMT

 Jacob Ortiz Firefighter

Jacob Ortiz graduated from IRSC with the goal of making a difference in the lives of people in his community. When he earned his A.S. in Fire Science Technology in the Fire Academy Track Program in 2015, he knew he was on the right track to the career he wanted.

After graduation, Jacob was hired as a career firefighter with the St. Lucie County Fire District. Jacob didn’t stop there with his education. In fact, knowing the medical aspect of fire service is vitally important, he re-enrolled at IRSC and is now nearing completion of his A.S. in the Emergency Medical Services Program in June.

One of the biggest reasons Jacob wanted to be firefighter is the opportunity to help people. “I always found myself volunteering for organizations that would help the community through various ways. In doing research, I found the fire service, which deeply prides itself on helping the community.”
Jacob continues sharing, “The thing I like about my job is the satisfaction of helping someone in their time of need and knowing you made an impact on their life.”

One of Jacob’s favorite experiences at IRSC was being able to train at the Treasure Coast Public Safety Training Complex, which continues to be a training resource for him serving as a firefighter today. “The training ground is one of best things, not only for the fire academy student, but for the fire district. I still go there to train with my crew.”
