Hunter Codddington has a dream. He wants to be a firefighter.

Coddington is a member of the Pompano Beach Ocean Rescue. He loves the work but has goals beyond being a lifeguard. “I want to be a firefighter and EMT. I like the fact that being a firefighter is a hands on job and one that is physically demanding. I love the idea that I will be able to help people,” he said.

He is studying to be a firefighter at the Coral Springs Regional Institute of Public Safety. “It is an awesome training program and they expect 110 percent. I like the challenge,” he said. “I also plan to study to be a nurse.”

During the day, Coddington and his fellow students learn the basics of firefighting including how to work with high pressure hoses, handle ladders and other skills.

Alisa Vartumyan, a student at the Institute likes the program. “It is a very demanding program and I like it. I want to help people and being a firefighter and EMT is a good way to help people,” she said.
