Fire and Emergency Response
MSU Denver’s Fire and Emergency Response Administration program encompasses all emergency services response disciplines.
In 2016, Damarley moved from Jamaica to the United States, finding newfound freedom in Colorado. But three months after arriving, unforeseen circumstances left him unemployed and unhoused. One day, a park ranger found him sleeping in a park, scared and alone. Instead of kicking him out, he helped him find a job. When he was laid off at the beginning of the pandemic, a voice inside urged Damarley to start living up to his potential; higher education was the way forward.
MSU Denver drew Damarley in with its open enrollment policy, diversity and academic programs. Today, Damarley is a Roadrunner.
