Continuing Education Unit (CEU)
In this class, participants learn how to merge their goals and objectives (more volunteers) with their customer’s goals. The workshop assists in identifying the various customers of the department and describes a proven, practical method of informing customers. The ROPE process (Research | Objectives | Program | Evaluation) is used to develop a program to recruit volunteers. Participants leave with an outline of a recruitment plan developed specifically for their community!
Recruiting and Retaining Emergency Service Personnel
In 2015, the Fire Fighters Association of Missouri (FFAM) received a federal SAFER grant. The FFAM's goal with this grant is to recruit and retain firefighters throughout Missouri. Developed in a partnership between the Fire Fighters Association of Missouri and the University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute, Recruiting Emergency Service Volunteers and Retaining Emergency Service Volunteers are two programs that will be presented across the state in an effort to keep Missouri fighting fires!
