Welcome to the Graham High School Fire and Public Safety Academy

My name is Joel Davis and I am the Academy Chief for the Firefighter and Public Safety Academy at Graham High School. Click here to view my bio.

By taking the Public Safety I class, all high school students throughout the ABSS district have the opportunity to be introduced to the many careers available in the field of Emergency Services that includes Firefighting, Public Safety, Emergency Medical Service, Emergency Management, Military, Law Enforcement, and the Judicial System.

For students that may have an interest in a career as a firefighter, we offer Firefighter Technology classes that give the student an opportunity to earn the North Carolina Firefighter certification. This certification will open opportunities for employment right out of high school. While in the Fire Academy, you will be equipped with the basic foundation of firefighter knowledge and skills.
