Remembering Lee Ireland
The University of Missouri Extension Fire and Rescue Training Institute's (MU FRTI) mission is to provide training that meets the needs of fire and rescue personnel and other emergency managers and responders so that they can better protect lives and property within their communities. In fulfilling this mission, MU FRTI has a direct impact on the well-being and protection of Missouri's greater than 23,000 firefighters and the 5.9 million citizens they serve.
In order to fulfill this mission, MU FRTI depends on a small dedicated fulltime staff supported by part-time Regional Training Coordinators and an Adjunct Instructor Cadre. The Adjunct Instructional Cadre includes over 160 regular part-time instructors, as well as guest and partner organization instructors for specialized programs like this Summer Fire School (SFS). The Institute gratefully acknowledges the role that all our personnel play in the education and training of Missouri fire and emergency service responders. During this year's Summer Fire School, we want to specifically recognize and remember the dedicated life of Regional Training Coordinator and Adjunct Instructor Lee Ireland who passed away on June 26, 2013...read more
