Degrees and Certifications:

Chief Edward Twigg

 I am the fire science and public safety teacher for SSS High School. Our school covers North Johnston High School, Princeton High School, South Johnston High School and Smithfield Selma High School. We have several students that come either in the mornings or afternoons from those schools. In this class, the kids are taught to be certified firefighters. Our goal is that when they graduate, they are employable as firefighters. The Fire Depts here in Johnston County  are very supportive of this program. The local Fire Departments come out and visit, they also help with training, practicals and Skills. The public safety classes learn all the parts of public safety. Some  examples are Fire, Police, Nursing, and Emergency Management (FEMA). With this class we hope to tap into the students'interests. 

A little about me:

I am a 37-year veteran of the Fire Service and the EMS service. I have been an instructor since 1996. I am a SSS Alumni. I graduated in 1985.  I live in Four Oaks NC, with my wife Cindy and our four children. I served in the Army with the 82nd Airborne. I serve on two tours. I am presently a Captain of Four Oaks Fire Dept.
