Eric Robinson

To the Rescue A 2018 graduate of Lake Dallas High School in Corinth, firefighter Eric Robinson is a success story of NCTC’s inaugural dual credit fire academy at his alma mater. He landed his job as a firefighter straight out of high school — becoming one of 11 new hires in Lake Cities, an expanding North Texas community which just opened up a new fire station.

Firefighting wasn’t always the dream, Robinson admits. Initially, he’d considered going to culinary school, but after he saw a video on firefighting, he “was intrigued” and signed up for the LDHS fire academy program. While learning the ropes of his challenging new job, the 19-year-old is far from resting on his laurels or taking a break from studies. He enrolled in an area paramedic school in September and is due to complete his program this May. After that, he hopes to pursue additional certifications, training in areas like Wildlife Rescue and Swift Water Rescue.

“The goal is to be involved with disaster relief and be deployed to areas around the country when disasters happen,” he says.
